Heater snot? Protein sludge perhaps?

What is heater snot? I have a fummy feeling my sisters tank has it because her tank get a horrible clear-white stuff on the top in thick layers it looks like the surface has a thin layer of ice - sludge on the top it is discusting! How can you get it to go away? Good luck with your fry!

It is generally harmless until it costs the top of the water since bettas are then nearly unable to penetrate the surface for air. Scooping out with a cup, or laying paper towel or a cloth ontop then removing usually works. Using a bubbler or filter to break the surface is best, as still water lets it settle.

Heater snot... Not exactly sure how to explain it just some gooey filmy stuff that is usually on the heater but can make it to plants, decor and surface of the water. It's slimey, annoying and gross

I believe it was a coating that came on the newish plant. I had two plants like that from the same store. The fish seem fine. They are eating both bbs and MWs without a prob. Just trying to adjust feeding so there is not too much left overs on the ground. Siphoned tank twice. I think only two dead total. Still too small for my camera.

siphoned again today. this tank is outside and there is brown algae growing in it. i dont know if this is why the tank bottom seems to be cleaner then when i kept the spawn tank inside the house with no sun during my last spawn.

they dont really eat the decaps i put in there but i still add just a little once a day.

they are one week old. here are some pics. i just put in the mws.

Good job!! :) Don't worry, mine did not eat decapsulated brine shrimp either. They are almost 4 weeks and some are willing to.

I just scrape the brown algae. Not sure if it is harmful but I always get it... I just keep it manageable by removing most if it once a week (depending on severity of algae)
