  1. I'm aware that the bacterial bloom "white slime" you can get on new driftwood is normal. I'm not too concerned about appearances at the moment and happy to let the slime run its course. I am interested to know members experiences on how long the bloom generally takes to clear up?
  2. I posted on here about losing 30 or so fish in 3 days when we had the heat wave a couple of weeks back. When I cleaned out the internal ottto filter it was full of slime. Now the tank has noticeable algae build-up which it has never had. Could this be due to introducing a led light? I had always used the double fluro light before.
  3. hi all 4 wks ago i got hold of some bog wood from the local shop and he said keep putting it in water until the water is clean then you can put it in your tank and it will be safe,its turn a darker brown but not very dark,well every time i change the water i notice that the wood feels like it has slime on it,so i hose it off every time and it feels fine only to find the slim on it again next time...is this ok to use and is this normal thanks again mick
  4. Hey there, I just noticed that some of the new rubber items in my tank have a white slime coating on them. Not a lot just on the air hose and the suction caps holding the filter. The older suction caps dont seem to have it. The tank is clean and all the fish are happy so I'm not worried. Has anyone else had this or know what the cause is? Mitch.
