    Hi guys, lately I've notice a fine powdery brown sediment on my leafy plants and aquarium decor.
    What is it ?
    What causes it ?
    How to get rid of it, clean it ?
    Will it return ?
    My tank is well maintained I believe, water is crystal clear,and parameters are good.


    PS: I meant sediment:)

    Is it a new tank that you've recently replanted? I get this when ever I'm stirring up the substrate. Just wait for the water to settle and gently wipe it off.

    I usually get this when I'm moving the plants around. For me, it tends to be fish waste that was stirred up. Can you upload a picture?

    Tank is about 2 month old, but recently I've added new plants and rearranged the tank when I did the WC and cleaning routine. Stirred up a lot of substrate I guess.

    That's what I did. Moved stuff around big time. Zoomed in pictures are really bad with my phone.

    That's fine. I'm sure you can just wipe it off the leaves with ease. It shouldn't harm anything in your tank.
