Is this cobweb?

yeah right now i just have some foil overlaying it. There are no holes in the foil as of now, so perhaps i will do that. and what do you mean by .3 solution? (what parts water to peroxide?)
You should really consider making holes in the side. Because CO2 is heavier than oxygen, it's not going to readily escape out the top, but rather stay to the bottom. If you can't/won't make holes in it, fan often. While most recommend three times daily, I recommend more often with larger projects such as that. If you can't make the time to do that, make the holes in the side. Not only does poor FAE cause cobweb, but it can severely stunt the growth of your mushrooms.
.3 solution is 10% of your standard, over-the-counter 3% peroxide, so it would be 1 part H2O2 to 9 parts H2O. You can mix a little stronger if you want, but that's enough to take out cobweb.

And, by the way, welcome aboard.

It just looks ready to case or add your bulk layer (poo/coir etc.)
cob web will grow real high, real fast and you'll see a significant differece between it and the cubie myc it tends to be really long strains... the myc in the picture just seems more like a vegetative cubie myc (which is often fussy) which is proably do to to the incubation (perfectly normal and wanted IMHO)
[FONT=Verdana]I would wait on any intervention untill more people on topia sound off on this one [/FONT
oh and all the info about freash air exchange is totally good and sound advice to increase yeild and reduce contams keep up the good work :;):

It really looks like it to me, when it is first starting out. In another day or two, I'd expected it to be another inch or so of nasty fluff. My last experience with it started out the same way and peroxide easily dissolved the mess.

cobweb has a more wispy appearance, like hairs/strands of gray stuff really protruding off the surface. what you've got there just looks like fluffy myc. IME, myc can appear slightly grey as it colonizes bulk substrates, since the substrate is relatively dark, and the fluffy myc is not thick enough yet to cover it for a completely white appearance.

Just a small update: I cased it early this morning and moved to fruiting conditions. Hopefully pins in a few days!
keep us posted on your progress :thumbup:
