    Question Fuzzy stuff on Manzanita


    0 Not allowed!
    I'm sorry if i I posted in the wrong area but I noticed a bit of this fuzzy stuff growing on my manzanita wood so I removed it and rinsed it off (tap water and a paper towel) and a few days later, it's back. Does anyone have any what this is and how to remove it?

    I get that on new wood sometimes... It's harmless and will go away on its own.

    Yep. Good chance the nerites will start eating it.

    +1 I've had that on new wood, although mine was very dark grey fuzz that grew in a cotton wool ball type thing. I removed it easily with a long thin stick I use for poking things in the tank (not fish!) (without removing the wood) and it only came back once more.

    I'm breathing a sigh of relief here, thanks! btw I've been reading your 72g journal and trying to learn as much as I can about how you set the sump up. Really appreciate the detail and photos!!

    You're spot on about the nerites, I've noticed they are on the wood more than the glass & gravel lately, I actually took a couple nice photos of them on the branches

    Grows on new wood. My fish LOVE it. They think it's a wonderful treat. I just let them eat it at their leisure, and the rest will go away eventually.

    Yup, It's just biofilm that some stock will eat although it will go away after a bit. Personally, I prefer the technical term "Driftwood snot'.
    Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.
