    Omg what is this all over my wood?
    Algae? Fungus? Brushes off easily but worried about it floating all over with Angelfry in the tank 0731171917a-1-1.jpg 0731171916-1.jpg 0731171918-1.jpg 0731171918a-1.jpg 0731171919-1.jpg

    Bacteria, Happens to everyone, the wood was not cured properly or not even at all, it should go away, or get a pleco, they love the stuff from what I hear

    Imo I would not worry-looks like normal stage for submersed wood.

    Ok thanks. I got it supposedly pre soaked but I did soak it for a couple days at 100 ° just to be on the safe side.

    I have cories planned once the fry are older. Would they like it? It will be too late but anyway lol. Or what about ghost shrimp?

    Not too sure with cories, but ghost shrimp will graze on it, not sure if they'll put a dent into it though
