Help with my new breeding attempt.

So you guys know Ive been trying to breed. Well I need a place to ask any questions during this attempt so I made this thread. Im coming up on the time and Im moving Snowflake into the breeding tank today so he can get used to it and hopefully blow a new nest soon. Well I had some more of that white stuff in the tank so I did a 100% water change and cleared out all the plants. It is filled up to 5 1/2" and the heater is warming.

First question of this process is I realized I am now out of styrofoam cups. I also dont have any bubblewrap. Is there any other allternatives or should I go get some of that?

Also an unrealated qusestion. My snowflake/marina tank has been taken over by this bron stuff on the decor. At first it was on the corner of one of the statues so I though it was poo, but recently it has spread to all the white decor. Is this red algae or some kond of fungus.

A floating plant or plastic food container lid will work.The brown stuff sounds like aggae to me but you might want to take a pic of it and post it in the freshwater aquarium part of the forum.

I dont know what it was but I took out the decor and scraped off most of the brown stuff with a wire brush thing.

And I will try a small tupperware lid or something.

The tank switch went well, I put snowflake in the spawn tank so he can get ready, and kingdra took over snowflakes tank for the time being. Both are taking it well.

He hasnt started it but there is still a half-dollar size chunk of bubble nest left from Kingdra, I hope that will help him start.

If they look ready they might go in late tommorow, Im going to DC United soccer game so I might do it before or after that. If they dont look ready then I will continue to condition them for a week or so.
