thanks guys i'll give the suggestions a try
doubleott05's right, i basically never vaccum and the soil is kinda like that ada stuff and breaks down after a while into this annoying fine silty stuff. But i just never thought it would be detritus since I only have a like 10 guppy fry in the tank and lots of filtration. I guess it might be something thats breaking down in the soil. Also does detritus grow in long hair like structures like that? and it pearls.
Theres actually two filters on the tank, a 700lph aqua one canister and a 1250 lph eheim 2075 which has perfect flow rate since its only been installed for about 1-2 weeks as im cycling it on this tank.
I also do 50% water changes every 4-5 days. But no vaccuming so I'll give that a try next.
