Hey everyone!

I hate to introduce myself to the forum with such urgency but i think i might loose my vivarium. I have an exo-terra set-up with coco husk bedding, and coco panels from vivaria.nl for the background. Just this morning i notices white mold on the base of the panel, near the substrate. I aslo found huge amounts growing at the base behind the panel, in between the silicone. It is white and green. It resembles mold but i am not sure. There are little white balls, all bunched together in different locations. White fuzzy mold , and finally green fur. I dont know the scientific names for these and i cant seem to find any pictures. I called vivaria and they told me it was probably the beginning of moss growth however i doubt it. Since the morning it has almost doubled in size, and is growing. I need help!

Everytime I set up a new Vivarium I get the same or similar "fuzzy" in my tanks. It soon goes away without any ill-effects.

I lasts a short time.

Possibly an algae bloom?
