Yup... rust colored spotches that eventually turned into a rust colored mat. Strangely enough, as they started disappearing, they started disappearing in circular spots too.

Prime will not remove silicates. Only thing I know of that will remove silicates from aquarium water are some of the Phosphate removing media/sponges. Specifically, GFO (granulated ferric oxide) removes both phosphates and silicates. But my experience with that is strictly saltwater so I'm not sure if it does the same thing in freshwater.

Yes, it seems as though this "outbreak" is spreading across the ornament's "ship sails" and consuming it, almost in a mat-like formation, as you describe...not quite there though; still horrendous circular patterns...

They look like burn marks, almost -- I hope this goes away by itself...

This growth can arise in salt and freshwater?

This rust-colored outbreak isn't dissapating off my ornament...

Is this really "diodes" or whatever they are?

You're going to have to be patient with it... It wont disappear overnight. Give it a few months at least. If it really bothers you, it is very easy to wipe off

Really? Months? Wow...I didn't know that...okay...

I am going to snap a picture of it tonight, along with a shot of my water quality, so y'all can see what I am talking about once and for all, and to get your input...

I'll be back with the pic...

Thanks.
