white dots on the bog wood

Postby caroline » Sun Sep 16, 2012 8:04 pm

Hi everyone,

can anyone tell me what the small white dots on my bog wood might be? there are two small groups totaling about 18 spots , im not sure if they could be eggs of some kind of fungus.

Also i noticed my water has a kind of milkyness to it. I did my water change as usual and although less ,it still looks a little milky I would also say it looks like it has dust in it? does this make any sence, all the fish still seem happy.

thanks.

Milkiness in the water can be common as a tank establishes itself and it ought to clear on its own.
White dots on wood. What sort of white dots? Could be a fungus growing, or could be eggs. Anything appearing to be looking after them? What fish are in there?

I would have thought my tank would be considered 'establushed'.although I'm new to fishkeeping , the whole tank and contents was addopted from doneone who could no longer look after it so has been going for a long time. We have added to the contents since though in the form of fish plants and bog wood.
The fish are, 1plec , 1 cae , 2 cherry barbs, 2 mollya 2 guppies 4 corydoras,5scissortails 9 Terra 1 ruby shark 4 adult platy 3 juvanile plagu 4 baby platy and rising! We also have 2 snails,brown with black stripes.nothing seems to be taking interest in the mysterious dots.they seem regularly spaced maybe slightly oval farther than round.I hope its nothing nasty , we also have developed some stringy alfre ,but I scrub the sides when I water change and try to keep everything clean.my husband does like to feed them though .
