Thanks Golden yeah mate most of the Googles relate what you say and if I can I will get some of those SAE's trouble is they are so hard to come by and manual removal is well - removing everything from the tank and either cleaning or replacing it. The latter is not really an option as I set it up with a rock based plan and gravel and I think perhaps cleaning those and putting them back is not going to solve the problem for obvious reasons.
I just wish that the shop I used to go to had never closed down as my troubles started with the other pet shop, and that rotten food I bought for the fish, or maybe importing it with fresh stock.
The stock I did get should have told me something in the first place as a lot of the new fish developed small white ulcer like lesions around their mouths - not white spot and only some of the stock I got from that place.
For what it is worth they told me that I have this wretched stuff because the water quality was so good - hum makes you wonder if there really are aliens eh??
