White Dandelion Like Fuzz All Over New Aquarium

Recommended Posts

nnhood

Was wondering what this white stuff is all over my aquarium, attaching a photo.

I have a 30 gallon tank with under gravel filter, 250 model biowheel filter, and also a UV sterilizer light that treats up to 50 gallons, which they say to leave the UV off for now because the tank is new...

 

I'm not sure if this is it in this video or not:

It doesn't seem to be affecting the fish at all, I do have some snails and a lobster (Australian Yabby), and a Pleco in here so was hoping they would eat it...

I saw someone recommended Seachem on one site, I do have an anti fungal, but I only used it once and it turned the whole aquarium green for a day and then cleared up.

 

I saw adding Hydrogen Peroxide even could help in small doses.

 

But I just want to make sure what I'm dealing with first...  What I've vacummed out with a suction over the weekend has already grown back.

 

Thanks,

Matt

I know exactly what your problem is

 

Your water does not have enough salt in it

 

I dose 775grams of salt to 5 gallons of water

Yeah, salt definitely kills the fungus... But what about his pleco? Salt is great at killing fungus, plecos, yabby lobsters etc.
