About a week ago I change the water (25%) in my aquaruim. Now there is fungus growing on the plants and a brown hairy fungus in the gravel. It is starting to grow on the glass. What can i do

A lot of this going on lately, is the fugues on your plants white? kind of like cotton? it could be that your over feeding. try cutting your feeding back to once a day and only give them enough food from them to eat for two mins. remove any left over food after that. clean the white fugues out using a gravel vac.

as for the brown algae it is more then likely Diatoms a common algae that grow in newly set up tanks. if you do not have a common placo or bristlenose catfish (these stay smaller then a common placo) get one and see if that helps. there is a few post on this as of late. here is one of them..


hope this helps..
