Mould In Tank


Recommended Posts

My tank is developing little patches of orange mould. It most defo is not algae because it's orange! It's annoying me and obviously is not good for the water but how on earth do I get it to come off and STAY off?

Thanks!

I had this too. I think i got it when i introduced some stones into the tank, they must have leaked something into the water ?. I did a vinegar test prior to putting them in but i had no fizz so i assumed they were ok. It seemed to only grow on the seals of the tank & it was spotty patches, is this the same stuff you have got ?.

Luckyly i only have a small tank about 18 Gal's so i was able to empty it out & clean the orangey stuff(it felt oily on my fingers) off with a new sponge without too much effort, i kept the stones out since & it hasn't come back yet. Maybe something has also leaked into your tank ? Have you added anythin new recently ?
