    Default Fungus/mold in bioactive enclosure


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    I started a bioactive tank a month ago that I plan to move my gargoyle gecko into once it's ready. The only thing stopping me is that there seems to be a lot of what I believe is a type of fungus in the soil. I used a combination of Josh's frogs bio bedding and ABG mix and I think I over watered it which is how I ended up with this problem. I havent misted or watered the tank for a week at least and the fungus doesnt seem to be going away. It looks like little white dots that are slightly fuzzy all on top of and under the substrate.

    How can I get rid of this? Is it harmful in any way?

    I don't think it's harmful and I never worried about it.

    Do you have a cleanup crew (springtails and/or isopods) in your tank? They will help get rid of the mold or fungus (which is harmless and normal in a bioactive, as long as you have the clean-up crew doing their job).
