Just hang in there and soon enough it will dissapear. New tank stuff. Oh and its not harmfull to fish and hardly anything eats it so dont stress trying to find a clean up crew to munch it down...
Ok thanks. I think im just paranoid with these stuff cause most people gets it around wks 3-5 and my tank has been running for almost 2 months now with the fish(not including the cycling process) if its diatoms, is it gonna found on just the rocks?
on the bright side...
my clean up crew are busy doing their job. 2 days ago One astrea made a treacherous journey to the rocks to clean it and til now he's still there
