I already looked through the self help section but still confused on the type of algae I have. It's long and wispy, very easy to remove. It looks grey in the water but when you take it out it's a slight green. Here's a pict


any ideas on what it is? I have a slight feeling it's because i haven't cleaned my filter in a while....

Im not sure what the official name is..but I call it thread algae.. i get it too..
Not too much a few strands here and there. I have not been able to keep it from coming back so I just remove it as i see it.

I use an old tooth brush.. just twirl it around the strands and pull em out.
