Fuzzy tank stuff and plants
I am doing a fishless cycle with fish flakes and brine shrimp cubes, although I am about to try ammonium chloride. Nitrites and nitrates seem to be present, but my ammonia levels stay low. Anyway, fuzzy stuff is growing on my substrate and decor. Is this something I should be concerned about? I have pics below.
Also, I am doing live plants as well. I have a couple--one is a Java Fern and I'm not sure the name of the other. They seem to have some spiky growth on the leaves and black patches. Is this okay? I have planted some bulbs as well but they haven't emerged yet. I have pics posted below.
I started my tank on July 4th, so patiently waiting before I add any fish! Thank you for your help and feedback!
