My plants are getting some brownish color on them, not dead foliage but rather a dusty film of sorts on the foliage. Am I supposed to wipe them off at all? I'm getting some good growth so don't know if I should just leave them leaves alone.
To me, it sounds like diatoms, a type of algae. If that's what it is, it's common in a newer tank. Eventually, it goes away on its own (although mine's been covered with the stuff for over 3 months). I just asked Jaysee about it yesterday, and he told me a BN pleco would take care of it.
