Have had my tiger lotus bulb in my aquarium for around a week now in my tank and the bulb has gone white should I take out of the tank to wash white substance off or remove it completely?
I have taken a photo not the best but shows whats happening.

Hi
Yes, and give the substrate a clean...looks life white mould.
Image is not the best....remove the bulb if its soft, its dead!
If the bulb is firm, when giving a slight squeeze... plant it with 2/3rds of the bulb above the substrate....pointed end facing upwards!
