Slime coat

Post by mrsbiffster on 18/12/2011, 02:45

I have a problem, my bogwood has slime coat disease. I already know what to do. All i need to do is take it out and give it a good wash. Anybody else have the same problem.

The tanks only been setup a week or so and i just put the bogwood and redwood in from dry, so they have been soaking up the tank water. It's not much the bogwood as it is the redwood that is covered in slime. Nows the time i wish i had a plec or something to graze on the slime.

The slime coat has disappeared from the redwood now and i didn't even wash it off. I just left it in the tank. I don't even have any fish in there either.
Time and patience and let nature do it's job. :thumbsup:
