white kinda sorta flaky stuff

Post by Sandman1969 on Sun Feb 14, 2016 11:01 pm

That's the best way to describe the stuff I see floating around in my koi/goldfish tank that has a sand bottom.
I don't use any floss for the 3 filters in that tank. So it's not floss breaking down which may be the case for my "shark" tank.

Anyone have ANY ideas as to what it may be? I wonder if it's from the bio max pouch that disintegrated about a month ago that is in my Aquaclear 500. That has since been replaced with a new pouch.

There's nothing on the sides of this tank. Not even algae.
