Okay, so I saw some white spots on my plant, could be food, didn't seem like air. Got out my photo equipment and started shooting greatly magnified pics. This is not on everything in the tank but is on several different plant leaves. I am about to do a water change today because it's due. I wanted to put his wood in today and clean the plants anyway. I don't want to put the wood in if I am going to contaminate it. Please note; you can't really see this under normal vision unless you really study the tank, and when something is magnified it can look scary. Suggestions? Ideas for cleaning the plants? I don't have PP. and am allergic to bleach. Thanks.
Is the tank new? Can't tell for sure if it's BBA or Diatoms. You can clean them off the plant leaves (use a soft bristle toothbrush) if you wanted and get some water changes going.
If it's diatoms, it'll clear itself out.
New tank. Two weeks old now. They are less than yesterday. They don't bother me but will they hurt my fish or plants? I like to let my tank be as natural as possible without messing with it too much. Water changes, prime ...
Won't hurt the mopani wood? I've been soaking and was going to add today.
Thanks, I may have went overboard. I had the tank half empty because of water change time. I pulled out the plants, most unrooted still and washed them. Tank is full again and everything looks clean. Thanks Veloran for all your help.
