Hmm... I have an "infestation" of it too.

I dont fight it and just throw it out when it gets crazy... Throw it in the compost pile. :)

If you have it with a Betta, be careful that it doesn't cover the surface. It can choke off the betta's oxygen supply.

Hm, I wonder if that is what is happening with my Guppies and Cories? I have noted the Guppies hanging near the surface just under the plants that float. I wonder if they are feeling a lack of oxygen? I am downsizing the amount of surface plants to see if it makes a difference.

Inga your guppys and corys do not breath air from the surface they may just like hidding under there. If you have female and male guppys sorry can't remember if you do he may be looking for fry to eat. I know when I have had fry the fish hang out at the top trying to eat them.

Kindest Regards,

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

55 gallon, 44 gallon, one 20 gallon tank, three 10 gallon tanks, and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

I have MTS and there is no cure.
