    So I couldn't get a picture, but there were little white fuzzies like pin head sized on the inside of my 55. Also some little daphnia, but I'm not too worried about that. It's probably because the rocks in there are from the back yard (cleaned and checked to make sure it's nothing harmful), but I can't tell if it's like algae or a bacteria or what. Honestly, I don't care what it is. What could I treat the tank with to get rid of it?

    Do you have a lot of snails? I'm honestly not sure what it is. You might want to Google it. I would do a water change and scrub down the walls, and check the filter for them too.

    Just some MTS. I'll scrub the walls, but that's not really going to remove the stuff from the tank, you know?

    Bump. Anyone have more ideas? Bacteria? A fungus? Some funky algae?

    I doubt it's algae. Are they moving? Again, you should probably Google it. I just did and there were some sites with ideas. I'm guessing it could be some kind of fungus. Keep an eye on the fish, make sure they're healthy

    Well I accidentally introduced ich into the tank but other than that they're okay. The fuzzies don't move except for with the movement of water from the filter

    I have this too- its building up on the glass, some rocks and plants -

    the fish are very active and showing no signs of ANY issue whatsoever.

    30G planted w/ peppered corys , zebra danios and tiger barbs

    Any info on this would be awesome

    Merry Xmas too!!
