The lfs said it could be hair moss or hair algae...idk...all i know is i need to get rid of it...any suggestions...here are some pics of it...

The image you tried to link looks like this...

PHP Code:
[IMG]http://imgp1203.jpg[/IMG] 
Which is why it didn't work. The rest of the URL is missing from it.

I'm guessing he doesn't have them hosted anywhere

pieky22, you need to upload your pics from your computer to a site before you can post them here. We can't see pictures that are just on your computer. Try something like photobucket or snapfish or picasso or something.
