between string algae and hair algae? does anyone have a good pic?
I have been cruising the internet and find most pics are in ponds, not tanks and what I see is not like I have. My tank is about 6 months old now and is just growing some wierd stuff. there is bright green whiskers sticking out from my val leaves. The fish and snail ignore it( guppies,platys and cae.)
On my plastic tank divider there is a small clump of pale hairs attached to the divider holes. At first i thought it was where someone had combed out their hair and it had got caught;but when I tried to lift it out I realized it was firmly attached. I has a single spot attachment with 1 inch blonde hairs radiating from it. :roll:
i first thought my husband had lost some more hair but he never opens the tank anyway.
what do you think it is?
I do not have photo capabilities :cry:
The other stuff I have is bladderwort and am removing it as i can as i understand it is nasty. Thanks for any help.
I have recently been adding liquid fert from hagen with iron. I do only 1/2 dose. I do not check water parameters as it will make me more nervous than i am now. ( i lay awake at night and worry about the fish).
