There's never algae in the tank between me using a sponge and the pleco, but it's in the corners, just beginning to separate the sealant from the glass. I'm afraid that it will cause a leak eventually.
Anyone ever experience this? I'm not sure what to do about it. I could cut a line because it hasn't made the corner yet and then add more silicone, but silicone won't stick to itself so I'm not sure if that'll help. I don't really trust myself to rebuild the whole tank, but I'm not sure I want to spend whatever a 75 gallon costs.
That's something to start a new thread about. Are you sure it's not mold?
i agree and i also agree that its mostlikely mold
