Just got done dunking this guy but was curious if I should remove this skin? Seems like its the layer that grew on the glass first. I've had some shrooms grow in between this layer!
Notice the nicer looking mycelial layer underneath

I've never seen that before, but if it is an overlay (a layer of mycelium growing over your mycelium), then my understanding is it needs to be removed or shredded (drag sterile fork tines through it) so that the good mycelium underneath has access to air and water.
