White Mucus like thing.

What is that white mucus thing growing in my tank? it's sticking in the betta bulbs i grew and in the plastic plants.

I had this once because of some plastic stuff I put in my tank. Remove any plastic stuff that is in the tank ( my case was a plastic soldier ) and could be causing that, then just wait some days and if it doesnt appears again you are fine. Check for plastic things which arent really for tanks like toys or so, or even a thermomether.

Good luck!

That's just organic material that floats to the surface. Aeration and/or filtration will get rid of it.

vilmarisv maybe the one correct, it's my first few days putting tannins(tea) for conditioning. i've been using the plastic plants for months now and it is my first time seeing this.

If you're using IAL in your tank then you will def have sliminess.
I don't know if you have a filter in your tank but just make sure that there's water movement on the surface. An aeration stone will work too.
If you're breeding, you will have this in your tanks... as long as you see the water moving on the top, you will be fine.
