Contam?
    #3422811 - 11/29/04 01:33 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

Hi there - got a Koh Samui brick recently (from mm.org) and after about a week I've noticed this...



If this is a contam (I've never had contam before from any bricks) is there any way of removing the contam from the brick (digging the soil out?) I have another brick in the tank as well, which seems to be fine. Could the contam spread?

tough to tell, but if the spot is green like i think it is then it's the infamous green mold. Yes it can spread, but you can try to fight it. Take a sterilized/knife spoon and big out the area. You then should spray the spot down with bleach or H202. A spray of the whole casing with H202 couldn't hurt. Some people salt after cutting out contams.

Good luck, not easy stuff to fight. I'm sure more people will comment soon.

Cheers mate, appreciate the feedback.

You're right, it is green - think it's best to cut it out.

Any other help appreciated.

It's going to be a tough battle. When the green is at the edge like that, it usually has spread down the sides of the container as well. You'll find out if you try to cut it out. Good luck;
