That sounds more like hair.
Does it begin on the edges of leaves? Gets long, and inch or more, sometimes curly like, uh, leg hair?
A pair of rosy barbs ate this in my tank within a matter of hours 90% was gone. By morning all gone. They will eat plants when all algea runs out, so I feed steamed lettuce on occasion when I see them nipping plants.

|Kai||Oh yea, it's brush algae. Thanks Looks like I'll need to keep a couple SAE's around, just in case.|

Check here for algae identification:
I think you have brush algae.

I had to tear down my old planted tank largely because of a massive algae outbreak. I move out of my folk's house and left my 29 gallon tank with them. When I came back about 2 months later, the entire tank was filled with this weird black algae. It was long and curly, and grew largely on the leaves of the plants. I literally could not see the plants at that point.
So yea, I was wondering what kind of algae that was, and how I can prevent it from overtaking my new tank.
Thanks in advance
