Do you have any soil in your substrate? Your fish might be stirring it up. Or maybe it's carbon, if you use any activated carbon in your tank.

I can't see it...are you talking about the black stuff or the fuzzy stuff?

I think the "fuzzy stuff" is a photographic effect, not something in his tank.

Nevertheless, it is hard to tell exactly what the black stuff is since it's small and somewhat out of focus. Maybe it's the tiny beginnings of beard algae?

did you recently change your carbon and forget to rinse it??? thats what it looks like to me....

Grimmjow 01-12-2010 09:41 AM

Any chance you can take a clearer shot with a camera of these rocks there? The rocks look like they're beginning to have brown algae grow on them, but too blurry to tell really..

Ill upload the pics from my girlfriends camera when she finds the cord, hopefully itll be better.

If you can't get pictures, googel image results for black beard algae see if that's like what you have? Does the stuff "fly off" easily when you wave your hand over it? Or is it attached like a lil plant almost?
