ID:	300860Any idea what the web like stuff is on the plants? Only noticed it this evening whilst doing a water change.
The tank is new, bout 4 days set up. No fish and this was the first change done to it. The plants have been planted for 2 days.
Also, when i did the change there was a cotton like substance floating in the water.

It's the start of hair algae or staghorn make sure your lighting isn't too intense and photoperiod is no more than 6-8 hours while the plants get a chance to take off. Frequent water changes and dosages of excel and regular ferts will keep it away

Seachem excel - it's a liquid carbon product with glut in it to prevent algae. Works really well
