Hello dear Community,

this kind of algea/bacteria/whatever is spreading all over my tank. Started with unhealthy plants and now finishing healthy looking plants. Someone ever faced this? Any advice?

Hi @kernoo

Firstly, welcome to UKAPS!

Secondly, your tank. The white 'growth' looks as if it may be a form of fungus. Let's see what others think...

Yes, thought so too. Since real marine fungus in not a topic in aquatic communitys, it would be interesting if its possible to use antifungal medication for aquarium fish to treat this.
