I have had a Biocube 32 up and running for four days now, and just this morning I saw that the glass was covered with many small white dots. Looking closely some appear to have little legs or hairs coming out from the sides, though their size makes it difficult to tell with any real clarity. What might they be? copepods? Spirorbid worms? eggs of some kind? I know the picture is not that great, I might try to get another and post it as well.
My apologies if a similar question has been asked before, I couldn’t find it. I just added thjs red macroalgae from the algae barn a few days ago. Last night I noticed lots of little white dots and a section of very fuzzy whitish material on one of the clumps of algae. I had read about algae having the ability to “go sexual” and release builtup nutrients into the tank causing a crash, so I’ve pulled all the new algae out of the tank for now. Any ideas if thats actually whats happening here? Thanks for the assistance!
I have these small white dots all over my glass and was looking at them through a magnify glass I have. Anyone know what they could be? I also have what appears to be detritus worms and I can actually see them eating algae on the glass when I use my magnifier. Also when I first turn my lights on it’s super cloudy in the tank then clears up after about an hour not sure what that’s all about
