    Hi all,

    Just seen this starting to grow in my tank. Is it good or bad?
    Much appreciated.

    Give it a good dose of hydrogen peroxide (about 5ml) in an injection and see how it bubbles away in front of your eyes ,dont worry hydrogen peroxide wont harm your tank salt water breaks it down to O2 gas and water.
