Okay guys here is a short walk through of my tanks. I got bored as I am home alone. My wife and daughter are at my sisters house cleaning some chickens. Anyways yeah umm So I did a video tour of my tanks. PLEASE EXCUSE THE MESS in the video!!! If my wife saw this she would absolutely kill me!!! I didn't realize I got some of that in the video until after words.
Also if anyone has ANY ideas on how to kill/get rid of that brown algae PLEASE let me know. I think I am about to the point of breaking down this tank completely and redoing it.



Disclaimer: Don't get use to me doing these types of videos as I HATE hearing myself talk or talking in front of people!!!!

Just food for thought,
That brown stringy algae fungus bacteria crap is something I have always had in my puffer tank(s). It doesn't seem to matter how I set it up or what tank I ham using to house the puffer. Doesn't seem to matter what type of filter I use or plants I have in the tank. I don't know what it is or what causes it. Its not something I deal with in my other tanks. I have been dealing with this stuff for 2+ years (the length of time I have had my Dwarf Puffer).

Nice video! Great shots of your tanks. Couldn't really see the shrimp, but I believe you they are in there. I don't really know what to tell you about that algae. I noticed some of it growing in one of my snail bowls. It's pretty easy to siphon out, tho. Hopefully the shrimp will help with it.

You have a TON of apple snail babies! It's like they are your new substrate! I'll gladly take a few when you want to get them off your hands, but from the looks of it you've got an apple snail farm going!

That appears to be what I had in the same tank that was bad with cyanobacteria around the same time. I mentally connected the two to organics. It was choking the roots of the floating plants, and even occurred down among the other plants. I also saw it on the roots (only) of floating Water Sprite in one or perhaps two other tanks at that time. I really do not know what it is, or the cause. I do suspect it is organics/nutrients related.

How you stop it then if its do to organics?? There's always going to be things breaking down and causing this right?? It mainly stays on the floating plants like the roots of my water sprite. I also get a slimmy brown film on the leaves of the water sprite in this tank along with a protein flint on the surface of the water. I really wish I know how to fight this! Its only in the puffer tank which is what confuses me the most.

In my case, I was working on cleaning up the cyano, and this seemed to go away with it. I haven't seen either for just over a year now.

Rather than bog down this thread, I suggest you start a new one on this specific topic. Other members may have input too that will help us.
