    I installed them only 3-4 weeks ago, at the same time on 2 different tanks. Black stuff appeared at the same time for both.

    Appears to be some type of fungus or bacterial growth. Is this treated wood, and are these DIY?

    It has happened to me too in my cycling tank. Would love to learn what it is.

    I also bought Lee's wooden air diffusers.
