Hello everyone, a few weeks ago I set up an 8 gallon aquarium--
It has driftwood, Java fern, Java moss and green crypts! There isn't a fish in there yet because the one I am going to put in there has fin rot (bad conditions at pet store)
A few days ago I noticed an oily colorful slick on the surface of the aquarium water
I did a bit of research and this is what I have concluded:
I do have a disturbance on the water's surface, but the only fish I am going to keep in this tank is a betta, and I don't want the water to be disturbed more than it already is
I did a water change with no help,
The only weird thing that I've noticed is this dreadful white stringy bacteria growing on the plastic tubing of my filter... do you think this has anything to do with it? Also the tank is not quite cycled but really close to the end of the cycle, there are a few nitrites last time I checked.
I really don't want the cause to be something that can cause harm to my already weakened fish!
