oh I gave them some food that they didn't like and that was forming most of the fungus. For some strange reason there is only about 4 snails left after the hundreds that I had I don't know why. When they started dying I noticed little micro-lifeforms that seemed strange to me. They look like little brown balls and some are just planaria and small worms but still very strange that after having hundreds of snails the population just declined like that.
the fish are fine though but the snail thing was strange. Do you know what those tiny brown balls might be? they are even in the glass.
the Hydra population dropped too.
