Thanks edit I have covered everything as far as increasing flow and water quality is concerned that's why I finally made a thread about it because I am stumped .
Rather than scrub it , use a turkey vaster ad suck it out , it's a bacteria so a lil bit will continue to reproduce if there is a food source. Get your nitrate s to 0.00 if you can and suck up as much as possible, the less food and the less amount of bacteria should die off , since you dont want to use carbon or GFO
try adding some cheato in your tank if you dot have a refuge . It will help suck up nitrates and phosphates and will help pods
grow as well . I have some in a back corner with some light getting to it , and a powerhead input basically inside the ball so it pulls water through the cheato, turning it into a filter of sorts
. I have noticed a boom in my pod growth !
