Hi Everyone.
I have a 36 gallon tank with med light and co2. I noticed this am while doing a water change that some of my plants have this hair looking black strings on the edge. Im not sure what this is if its good or if not how to do away with it? I fertilize once a week with flourish iron, nitrogen and potassium. I had been dosing 2x a week up until last week when I bought redsea flora base then cut it to 1x a week. I do weekly water changes of 10 gallon. I feed 2x a day.
Thanks for your help.

I used to have a bad epidemic with it on my amazon swords, edges would have thick dark brown stringy algae/moss... I just trimmed of the old leaves that had it and sooner or later new leaves popped up lookin good as new, I think it might be a type of black beard algae, super duper hard to get rid of but possible,.... *scrub scrub scrub scrub scrub*, lol, I don't know if bba is the same as what is on the edges of my leaves but it looks very similar though, good luck
