Awhile ago, a month or two, I had a pinkish white stuff that grew on my tank walls and the plants and everything else.....it disappeared. Within the last week it looks to be re-appearing. I can wipe it off and it returns within 2 days....I guess I am assuming its a bacteria of some type. Are big water changes the only answer? My plants are now getting brown spots on them, I am not sure if its because of this stuff, but I cant hardly keep up with it, so I suppose the light isn't getting to the leaves like it should. The water remains very clear. The fish are all healthy, and the parameters are right on.
