The new tank.

I THINK this is Sort of hair algae covered in diatoms.
But I’m not sure.

We’ve been manually removing it but it comes back super fast. I’m not even sure how to get it out of moss.

Tank is very new started in late June, fishless cycled, added fish last weekend.

Our lights are on a preset cycle with a Finnex planted + 24/7 - I find lighting most confusing aspect of the hobby.

I’ve not been dosing ferts since we got fish.

I have the aquarium coop pack of easy green, liquid CO2 and iron. Root tabs are in my PFS substrate.
