I set up my 10 gallon a few days ago for Cleo. Yesterday I noticed a slimy white film on the top of the water and the top side of the tank ( I rubbed it off the side and it was gross and slimey)
What the heck is it?
The only thing new I got was some wisteria plants.
Yep, I just take a cup and skim it off on the days I dont do a water change. If you submerge it so that the rim is just below the water level, it creates a vacuum and sucks in all the water from the surface.
For now, I took off the sponge baffle..The top of the water wasn't moving at all and was very stagnate looking. I lifted the intake on my filter, so hopefully the current wont be too bad. I will see if the white slime is better in the morning now that I took the sponge off..
