White fungus is more dangerous than black fungus, so if you notice white fungal growth, remove infected plants immediately. You will also want to remove any fungal growth on decorations and/or gravel. This fungus can be harmful to your aquarium plants and fatal to your fish -- it spreads quickly through the membranes of the fish. You may notice white cottonlike growth on your fish, as well as the waste on the bottom of the aquarium.
Black fungus will grow if you do not clean your tank water properly. It is attracted to higher levels of salt in the water, so when you do not clean, test and treat your water, it will start to spread throughout the aquarium. Black fungus is not necessarily harmful on your aquarium plants, but if it continues to flourish, the fungus can kill your plants and continue to spread. If you notice black fungus growth in your aquarium, clean and treat your water, scrub the glass and clean off all decorations in your tank. If the fungus continues to grow, treat the water with a salt-reducing chemical.
