It is usually old food and poop. Does it match the color of the food. If you use flakes it is probably a greenish/brownish color, other foods may give you a sandy looking color or red, gravel vacs are good for getting rid of it. That would be my guess.20g long - 2 Male Bettas
30g long - 10 Tiger Barbs
75g - 2 Tiger Oscars
