Problem:-In the last week or so a white "powdery" growth has started to form on the roots of one of my plants and the drift wood it is growing on. It is also growing on the rocks in the submerged part of my trickle/sump filter. My Java moss also seems to be suffering from it.

My water is looking a little cloudy, but gets less cloudy the longer its been since a water change, which I'm doing about twice a week.

I'm hoping someone knows what it is and how to stop/remove it.



I've tried rinsing it off and scrubbing it with a toothbrush, but it comes back stronger.

Bit hard to tell from the photos, but it looks like something similar I've had grow out of mopani rootwood before. The stuff I had got seriously munched on by my bristlenose, and eventually disappeared.

I've also seen photos of golden vine with something similar.
