So today, in the daylight, I noticed in my HM betta's tank that there is all white slimey looking stuff on the plants, decorations and bigger rocks in the tank.
Its an unfiltered tank but there is a heater (set to 77F) and an airstone. I thought maybe the warm temperature and oxygenated water were making this stuff grow. I've never seen it in my other betta's tanks and neither of theirs is heated or has an airstone. I unplugged the heater but the temperature will still be fine because the other tanks (in the same room) are at around 73 without a heater.
I have some Java Moss in the tank and the rest are plastic plants. The other two tanks have Java moss (from the same bunch) in them as well, but no gross white stuff.
Next water change I am going to rinse the gravel and everything off to get rid of this, but I was wondering if anyone else has had this in their tanks and knows what it is/what to do?
