I think this algae looks closest to hair algae, but it's a little bushier and it's light brown. What is it, and what is the best way to get rid of it? I pick it out, but when i do, it's reestablished within 2 or 3 days.

I have delt with this algae before, I believe some vals that melted over the weekend while I was gone was what initiated it's growth... and if I remember right I never did fully get rid of it no matter what until I bought new plants... nasty stuff sorry bud.

that look like rhizoclonium if you don't have shrimp overdose excel will rid of it, I really hate that algae got to deal with it quick otherwise your whole tank will be cover with it, it will smother your plant
