Grows in bright green clumps in the gravel, around the base of plants like Echinodorus and around mechanical objects. It has a coarser texture than "beard algae". Beard algae will ripple in the water current, hair algae tends to form matted clumps. Individual strands can get to 5 cm or more. This is easy to remove mechanically by twirling a toothbrush in it. Can be troublesome if left unchecked. This is a popular food supplement for fish among European aquarists.
Grows in long, thin strands up to 30 cm or more. Tends toward a dull green color (hard to tell because it is so thin). Usually indicates an excess of iron (> 0.15 ppm). Easily removed with a toothbrush like hair algae.
I gave up for a long time and just cultured hair algae for my shrimp and it worked the same as moss. Now I'm finally going to try again with moss...

lol, i would say you do!
as for it being the same, i have no clue. "hair" and "thread" arent exactly scientific names...
dont feel bad. you could be crazy like me and have tanks that have ONLY algae
the two ways i know of to get rid of it are algaefix and excel, neither of which are very good for your shrimp...
