Hi there mate,

What do you have in your tank?

Also is there a chance that you can up-load a pic or two?

It could be a large chunk of algae. The stuff grows when the aquarium is getting too much light and/or excessive nutrients. You may want to remove the blobs, reduce lights-on time to ten hours a day, and make sure the aquarium does not receive direct sunlight.

You can reduce excess nutrients by feeding less, doing more frequent partial water changes, housing fewer fish, and adding fast growing plants. Do you have a water test kit? If ammonia or nitrite measures anything but zero, excess nutrients are the problem.

Please keep us posted.
