Can any one identify?

Hello all, I have a tank that I have some driftwood in and I have some strange growth towards the top of one of my pieces of wood. It is the only spot I see it and the shrimp graze on it and keep it clean but not really sure what it is. I have some Java moss there as well but I have this patch of stuff...

Pics are to follow...

any and all help appreciated. I am sure it's not harming the fish as all of my parameters are perfect. Thanks!

I have the same thing, I don't know what it is, but I know it's probably from excess light. After I made the photoperiod 10 hours, it started growing. Lowering light is probably the way to go, and to ID it... I think it is string or hair algae. There is probably someone here who knows though. Good luck!
