Algae or mold?


I cant tell what this is. Started out as white hairs. Then green spores into what's below. I had a fubar with my co2, so there was a day of no co2 into the tank. Nitrates are around 40ppm, no ammonia or nitrite. Ph 6.6

Weird. Looks like both. Mold is white, algae is green.

API's fungus cure API's fungus cure
will kill mold like that (assuming that it is mold). I had a bunch in my tank, and it was killing my plants, and the fungus cure took it out after it's 2 day treatment cycle. It will turn your tank electric green for 2 days.
