Identify


Can you guys help me identify this? I purchased this pre planted log from a local fish shop and it was growing on the log when I got it. I really love the look of it!

Any ideas?

Thanks

Green Beard Algae. There are several causes for it's appearance but generally it thrives in unbalanced conditions such as those found in LFS. I like the look of it but wonder if it will infect slower growing plants. In a balanced system it may not spread and just exist, although I don't know. I've never played with it.
