substrate

2011-09-02 13.25.26.jpg

Here are some pictures of my substrate. My question is I know that it is suggested not to touch the substrate in a planted tank. Is this normal looking to you?

Sorry I know they are not the best pictures but you can still tell there is a bunch of brown "stuff" that is getting pulled down through it. It looks bad to me and I want to vaccine it but if it is best not any y'all think it is okay I will leave it be.
Thanks for the help

Not clear in the pics, but I think i know what you are referring to, and it is normal. I leave it alone.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
