I have been dealing with this stuff for 2+ years (the length of time I have had my Dwarf Puffer).

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.
