Hi all, any advice greatly appreciated as new Platy owner - tank about 10 weeks old. What is the brown all over the tank and ornaments ? Please look at the photos. Is it just brown algae that will go away?
Re: Advice on this brown all over my Platy tank??
This is commonly found in new tanks. The best way to remove / "keep on top of it" is to give the decor a good scrub and using a toothbrush dedicated for fishkeeping - you can do this during the weekly tank maintenance.
What are your readings for ammonia, nitrite and nitrates, especially before your weekly water change?
