They'll go away eventually - they'll consume up the silicates and then be gone

The only way I know of is to skip the step in setting up a tank where you add water. It has other drawbacks to it though, and should be thoroughly researched before attempting this method.

im seeing little stick green things... and some feather dusters growing on the glass... is this normal... what are these green things? they are less than a mm thick and maybe a cm long... unnoticable from a far.
