Hi there all,

Since a few weeks I have a strange white mould on the window of my aquarium and its moving. If I check a few hours later, it has moved, also crawls on plants and stones. Anyone knows what this is, and how to get rid of it?



kind regards,

Andreas

I am not sure what they are but I have heard that there is a rare freshwater species of a type of tube worms like the marine species but for the moving around the aquarium I have no idea how. sounds like you got a new strange creature lurking in your tank.

Myxomycota? It's a form of slime mold that moves to feed and, if I remember correctly, is completely aquatic. Not sure if that's the complete name but that's all I can remember.
Hope that helps.
