Root tabs question... not about plants
I put the root tabs in a few days ago, is it normal for the tab to seep up through the substrate and be visible when looking through the glass? It kind of looks like mold on my sand, not sure if this is normal or not
I also added some root tabs a few days ago and the same thing happened. They then seemed to disappear again - they didn't go on to take over the world like "The Blob". :lol:
sometimes the roots are what causing it to resurface.my tank has the same problem.
never had this problem myself. make sure your tabs are pushed down a good 2-3 inches into the substrate
my roots are way above the gravel.no matter how many times i add gravel to bury them they come back with a vengeance so i've given up
I too have not run into this problem, make sure they are burried well.
If you're seeing a white fuzzy growth though, I'd remove them immediately and start with fresh tabs buried deep into the gravel. White fuzz in an aquarium is not normal, nor dies it sound safe for your fish.

see the roots??? iim possible to cover and this will be the 3rd time if i do cover it.
I dont have any fish in the tank, and I did put them a good 2 inches and they did it again. I'm calling a fair game and just gonna let them do their thing
