weird milky growth on live rock
Hello to all, I am worried about my tank, as I was doing a water change today, I noticed that there was a very light milky, silky growth on nearly all the live rock. I have a Puffer, pseudochromis, 2 damsels and a picasso. i was hoping someone could tell me what this is, as it looks like algae, or something that shouldnt be there anyways, please help me!!Thanks
if you can provide pics, that would help a bunch. What are your water parameters? And how long has your tank been set up, and how big is it?
Ok, I am without a didital camera right now, but I thought a more accurate description might help, the matter is more like "cobwebs" than milky. And my ph and alkalinity are fine.The tank ihas been going for about 3-4 months
hmm, i've never heard of that. It COULD by cyano (a bad form of 'algae', actually bacteria), but I don't know if cyano comes in white.
Do you know your nitrate and phosphate levels? And what kind of water do you use for mixing saltwater and doing top-offs? Do you use tap water, or do you use RO/DI or some other form of filtered water?
Basically, I'm hoping to identify or eliminate the possibility of this being a bad thing or a sign of not-so-good water quality. If I can't tell what it is, at least maybe I can help you figure out if its bad or not! :-)
