I'm giving nature a few more days, I have a tank set up and a sponge that's been cooking since the first spawn.

It's not staghorn, this stuff doesn't attach, it kinda drifts around the tank until it hangs up and I remove it during wc. The flow, lighting and ferts are the same as when there was sand in the tank and I didn't have this junk.

Excess nutrients from a more captive substrate?? Have you hit it with h202?

That was my first thought but, I have 1 ozelot sword, 7 crypts, 2 dwarf lotus, 3 tiger lotus and some compact hygro so I have a pretty number of heavy root feeders.

I have hit it with h202, but it multiplies so fast I can't tell if it has an effect.

If you're dosing the water column per recommendation? More root tabs less water column ferts would be my vote..

I use mostly root tabs and about 1/8 dosage per week of liquid for the bit of rotala in the tank so there's not too much for ferts in the water column.
