Well i was doing the fishless cycling process but ended up with a fish in long story.. The tank is 20g and has a dwarf gourami in there he seems happy.. I do daily 30% percent water changes.. Because i dont want ammonia and nitrites sky high.!!! It has been cycling like almost 3 weeks ago... Im almost done..

It looks like some algae. It's hard to ID though. It's on the glass correct?

Looks strange. It almost looks like an algae wafer that has swelled up from being in the water...?

Well.. when in doubt, take it out. Some sort of algae or possibly (unlikely) a fungal growth

My first thought was a turf algae, but I've never heard of either turf or bubble algae in a freshwater tank.
