• Welcome to ScapeCrunch!

    We are a friendly, online community of people interested in planted aquariums. We support and help each other learn and grow. It is our sincere hope that you will join us and find our tight-knit community valuable and fun!

    ScapeCrunch is different than Facebook Groups. Here's how:

    • It is a place where you can make long-term friends in the planted aquarium hobby and have long, multi-day talks on specific subjects.
    • Unlike social media, online communities like ScapeCrunch are much better at curating collective knowledge and in fostering deeper relationships.
    • They lend themselves better at long-form discussions.
    • You can maintain a thread on your personal aquarium with pictures and details. Other members can comment, help and ask questions. You can do the same with their Member Tank threads.

    Where Facebook is more like a large city-wide party, ScapeCrunch is more like your neighborhood bar "where everybody knows your name. And they're always glad you came." It's always fun to go to large parties but it's at the local bar that you feel people really know you. The great part is that you can and should go to both!

    Please consider joining to become a full fledged member of our growing community of planted aquarium obsessed enthusiasts. Let's grow together!

Is this BBA ?

This started to appear at the top of my biggest piece of drift wood in the low tech tank, the distance between this part and the light is ~ 3 - 4 inch
After my weekly maintenance last Friday I scraped and syphoned it from the wood, but now it returned back in less than 4 days and more than usual, so I am wondering is this BBA or the slime that comes out of the drift wood?

My fish are not interested in eating it, so any way to get rid of this other than the manual scraping and syphoning, it seems to be unharmful but it is ruining the aesthetics !
