    Had to flood my UG dsm after 2 weeks because I started growing mold. I flooded my tank and it has been fine for about a week. No live stock just the UG, blasting co2, temp is at 70* F, lights are on 6 hours a day, 50% ro/tap water change every 3 days. This popped up today and is starting to spread. Any ideas and treatments?[​IMG]

    Looks like diatoms to me, but not 100% sure because I have usually only seen it on my wood. Diatoms get devoured by otocinclus and amanos, which I put in my fresh tanks on day 1 because I always use seeded filters.

    The mold on the plants is the identifying mark of plants got infected with some insect. You must try some diatomaceous earth or any peppermint oil spray to remove the mold and slag from the plant leaf. Last year one of my sisters who is fond of gardening was also asking about the similar question. She was fed up with the aphids on her plants and thus one of her neighbour suggested her to contact with the best exterminator new York city. Likewise you can also take some help from the pest exterminator nearby your area.
