    Hey guys I somehow got some white lichen like stuff growing over my water feature. They seem to grow about 4 inches long and look kind of like thin roots without the smaller hairs.

    The area is always moist and they look pretty cool, I just want to make sure they will not be a hazzard for the frogs.

    Would this be the white mold I have read so much about?

    That would be my guess. We have in some tanks too.

    It takes more than 5 hours to get a response on here. This isn't the busiest of forums.
    I saw it earlier, but I have no idea.

    It looks similar to this. These are roots that were attacked by a mold or fungus. Or, just a fungus that started growing.

    No worries imo. Looks very natural to us. :)

    Just a random fungus that started to grow. I will just keep an eye on it. If it starts to overgrow measures will be taken.
