Hello & welcome, I do apologize that none of my colleagues could aid you while I was away. Stil, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

Can you tell me what your water parameter readings are (ie pH, ammonia, nitrites, nitrates)?

Can you take a photo of this attachment? If you can do so, this will let me see what you are seeing. To post them online, you can use the paperclip icon on the tool bar above your text box. Or if you can't see that on your computer/phone, then you can post them on any other site (ie Flickr, Photobucket, imgur, etc) and paste the web link here for me to check.
