    I'm getting this white slime stuff with air bubbles at the tips. Do you guys know what's going on and how to get rid of it?[​IMG][​IMG]

    That almost looks like a fungus. Hard to tell from the pics, any chance you can take higher res ones?

    Sort of looks like the slime I had growing in my slot pipe and skimmer when I was adding CO2.

    I'm running a skimmer in front of the scrubber.

    Im not running carbon full time. But when I do the slime comes back about the same.

    I noticed yesterday that my power heads where running really slow. Maybe it was a lack of circulation problem. I cleaned them and time will tell if that was it now.

    It is looking like it was my power heads all clogged up. The areas that I blushed the stuff off of a week ago are still the same. :)
