can anyone help identify this algae?
New to the forum here, and really hoping if someone can help me out with identifying some algae that I have. I’m not sure if I’ve got diatoms here or some sort of hair algae. I *think* I’ve been reading up enough to know how to get rid of it if it’s brown hair algae (water changes, excel, lower light, phosphates etc) but if they are diatoms, seems like I have to dose with more beneficial bacteria?
Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
