My azureus tank has a great stuff and cork background. For the past couple of weeks the cork has been turning green, kind of like algae growth on it. Is this normal? The tank has been setup a 3 months or so now. The cork itself doesn't look wet either.

If it's not normal, what should i do?

Thanks!

Yes, algae growth is normal. The constant humidity and condensation are the factors here. All of my tanks have developed algae growth on the sides of the glass, rocks, wood and even plant leaves that don't dry out quick enough. I know that my tanks are not as ventilated as others, but I have had no problems with them and they are all aired out 2 -3 times a day.

Ok, i wasn't too worried just wanted to make sure. My tanks aren't ventilated at all since we have very little humidity here.

Thanks Bill.

NP man. The lack of ventilation will explain the rapid growth. When it starts to take over the sides if the viv, you can either leave it (as ot won't do any harm) or you can scrape it off with a razor blade.
