hi,

well something is odd does anyone have trouble with this also,

well on my airline tubing a white flaky coat is always stuck on, looks normal until you move it than it just comes pouring down,

just wondering what is it and how do i prevent and get rid off,

its definatley not a disease, been like that for months,

but is getting up my nerves

on the airline in or out of the water ?

if it's out of the water I'm guessing it's just

calcium deposits

its in the water, every time a current hits the airline it falls off, not slimey feels normal,

but after i added bristlenose they were swimming near the back and disturbed it so went every where,

when i woke up today, all gone, guess the bristlenose did it :thumbup:

Sounds like them tiny little white worms that appear after over feeding.

They are always in the tank but usually the numbers are low enough to conceal them in the gravel.

But when there is an abundance of excess food they have population explosions

Back off on the food and they dissappear overnight.

Do they look like tiny white hairs?
