I notice that I get these when I slack off and the organics are allowed to build up. Normally I just remove a spot here and there and try to be more diligent. I came home recently and my instructions to turn the AC "up" were interpreted as "off." Tank was at 95 degrees for about five days. Massive die off of plants, especially moss (which previously covered EVERYTHING, therefore EVERYTHING was covered in a rotten layer when I got home), organics through the roof, this stuff was everywhere. I just tore it down and started over it was so bad.


I do not know what it is. I think it might be red algae, not diatoms? Otos won't touch it. Not mine, at least.

Just keep removing it as much as possible and changing water. I think removing organics will do you more good than trying to tweak nutrients.
