Slime

I do weekly water changes, scoop out left over food.... make sure everything is clean. There is a slime or oil slick across half of the tank. It scoops out with th net but I am wondering what it may be? Any ideas...

Is it on the surface of the water? I had slime on my water before I got a filter. If you don't have a filter, I recommend you get one! It cleared everything up for me!

What kind of water conditioner do you use? I found that Stresscoat did that to my water.

Happened to me too. Once I got a filter, it went away. It's disgusting :P I have have some in my non-filtered tank, but after doing a thorough soapless wash, it also went away. But then again I do daily water changes in that one... anyways get a filter. :)

The filter or the conditioner? I don't think either of them have Aloe Vera. I'm not at home right now but I can check when I get there.


Only 4 white clouds left.... :(
