So the Mystery is Solved!
So maybe about two weeks ago I posted about an Betta with some supposed algae on it tail that was white. I had fielded many probing questions to no avail, from water quality to fungus.
I finally found the problem, and man o man, why did I not catch on sooner! I was using and water conditioner with stress coat-(aloe etc..), the API water conditioner + stresscoat, and I decided to see if this was the cause. I got some generic tetra stuff, and started to use it. I change the Betta's water 2-3x's weekly, and within two days, the stuff was gone, and the plants that I have also look less slimy and are doing better!
So I guess the moral is, if the fish dosen't need more slime coat protection, leave him alone! Im just glad it wasen't an fungus!2.5 Gal- Frank, Male Betta, HM- Low Tech Planted Tank

I'm glad to read your fish did not have anything serious
Sometimes those porducts are really not required. This is a good example of that.If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.
