It isn't like those pictures. This tank has been running for 3 years.

At this point I would think the wise of course of action would be to remove the rocks, since that is the only thing you have changed. Then do a water change and see if the condition improves. If it does not improve then something really interesting is going on. JMO

If it's not like those pictures, then I don't really know. It seems the 'finger' is being pointed at the rocks, but that's just a guess on my part.

Well maybe you guys are right. Here are some pics? It sorta looks like regular poop but I've never been able to get the gravel totally clean... brown/red ish waste in the gravel. Also I have a picture of the rocks included.




Here are the rocks.




Feel free to check out my gallery. Just got some pics of my new saltwater tank and a picture of my molly that I think is sick.

that stuff does look like waste.. its just not settling?..
how much circulation do you have?
if its so much that the waste cant settle you might want to cut it down, say 5 cycles per hour, some to let it settle wile you take care of the problem..
to take care of the problem.. multiple small water changes with light gravel vacs between times of the waste settling.. HTH

Sure does look like some accumulated mulm that has been kicked up....a couple of good gravel vacuums and water changes, plus some filter pad in the filter should have things bright and sparkly in no time.

Will do. Maybe I just need to have more frequent water changes. I use a python normally but the valve on it busted. cracked right down the middle :S


Hey... those are interesting rocks. I can't tell if that white stuff on them is paint or what.
