    ok here's the problem. I've been doing this whole grow thing for like ten years but I haven't dealt with this problem for like 4 years and for the life of me I don't remember what I did to solve my problem. so the situation is this. I have these Rubbermaid storage tubs, there the 10 gallon ones, about 8 inch tall. I have great amounts of air in the water(plenty of air stones) and I have a power head to circulate it too. I use the super naturals aquagro, I as so add the 35% hydrogen peroxide H2o2. So it's not dwc but close and they have always worked great. however, I just move so I had to reset up my tubs but this time there's white chalky residue allover inside of the tubs, It seems as if the residue dust is attaching to every thing in the tub, it is spreading and growing like algae, but it's not algae.ffice:eek:ffice" /><O:p></O:p>
    <O:p> what the heckis the white stuff and how do i get rid of it????:(</O:p>
    Any hep on this subject would be great.....

  2. it could be mildew maybe, but im not too experienced so im not 100% sure.
  3. wouldn't the H2O2 kill any mildew
  4. Nope. H202 is actually a fail-safe against air-pump failure. You should always arreate your water with airstones and pumps. H202 is a back-up Oxygen generator but it won't last very long (about two days before it all breaks down).

    That stuff could be one of two things: Powdered Mildew or water sediment. If you have hard water or don't filter your water, it may be built up sediment. If it's growing, then it probably is mildew of sorts. You need to get some mildew soap (used in tile-cleaning supplies a lot) to wash that stuff off, it doesn't like to come off easily.
  5. thanx itty i'm glad you seem sure of your self and I thought is was a posibility that h2o2 wouldnt kill the mildew if thats what it was. peace
