it looks like it could be a lot of tiny hydras
a terrorist organization from the nazi era hell bent on taking over the worldWhat are hydras?
Hydra is a soft bodied freshwater polyp, that sometimes is accidentally introduced to freshwater aquariums. Hydra is composed of a tubular body with sticky foot at one end and a dozen tentacles at the other. These tentacles possess stinging cells that allow the Hydra to immobilize their prey. Like jellyfish, Hydra has no brain, no respiratory system or even musculature, yet they pose a real danger to the freshwater aquarium.
- They could be just algae. Algae comes in different color depending on your aquarium light or nutrient. Mainly greenI'm noticing the stuff on my plants in my 75 gallon tank. This is my first time "experimenting" with aquarium plants. I have Water Wisteria and I forget the name of the other plant. I plan to grow other Medium/High Light plants in the future. Just trying to get my feet wet with these since I heard they are hardy. The lighting is 3 5000k 85 watt spiral bulbs.
Is this algae?
If it is what type?
If not, what is it? Is this normal?
I'm buying Seachem Root Tabs, Flourish, and Flourish Excel tomorrow. Do you think the Excel with help with this growth or do I need to back the lights up? Turn off 1 of the bulbs?
What would you do going forward?
I thought diatoms stick onto plants, not around.looks like diatoms to me....
Italian stallion you crack me up though
