    Hi there. Just wondering what this is and if there is anything that eats it or if it is easily removed manually. [​IMG][​IMG]

    IMHO it looks like the beginning of BBA or Black Beard Algae, how long are you leaving your lights on everyday?

    Yeah 12 hours is way too long. Try and cut back to 7-8. Also try to get an electric timer
