how would u waste d plnts? pull up d plants, wash the soil and put the plants back...no wastage...shouldnt take more than 6hrs

yes its not advisable to wash for new setups...but since u moved ur setup, there might have been bacteria die off creating unwanted chemicals like ammonia etc that might b responsible for such slime...its jst abt giving it a shot if possible...

Remove the algae as much as you can.. dont disturb anything else...

Those are fungus and hair algae.. This is because you have too much lighting and too less water movement and filtration... reduce photo period to 4 hours and immediately add a small powerfilter inside! also keep changing water every alternate days.. ADA tanks needs frequent water changes for first month! u can reduce WC to once a week later. and dont dose anything but Brighty K right now until next 1 month!

Remove as much as you can manually
And do a 70% WC.
