What is growing in my tank?
I recently bought a fish and 3 cichlids to go with it. I feed them blood worms and spirulina pellets. So far everything has been running smoothly, this morning when i turned on my fish tank all of the bits of food that weren't eaten had this spider web looking stuff on it and i was wondering what it is and does it harm my tank?
I wasn't sure how to preview the pictures so here is the link.
White fuzzy stuff is usually a fungus.
Do you vacuum the gravel when you do your water changes?
I would definitively vacuum the gravel and get any of the uneaten food out. If it forms fungus on it it can be a real pain to get rid of. Once the fungus is formed it can spread through out the substrate and other parts of the aquarium.
I haven't vacuumed the water yet, i just got the tank a week ago and got the fish last friday.
I would still at least try and get the un eaten bloodworms out of there.

Can it hurt my fish?
I have a 29 gallon fish tank that has a mold problem, i just vacuumed it and was wondering if there is a quicker more effective way to take car of the mold problem..
Are you sure it's mold? It could be a bacterial bloom. A picture would be helpful if you can post one here.
Its on all left over food that isnt eaten
Reduce the amount of food offered and vaccum the gravel with each weekly water change.;-)
