Hey all, was just looking at my tank and noticed this stuff at the bottom of the driftwood, thought it was an algae (haven't seen it before + wasn't there when i originally bought the plants/driftwood) but I cant be too sure.

Checked out http://www.theplantedtank.co.uk/algae.htm but couldn't see anything too similar too it. It is really only situated around the roots of the plants (the stringy looking stuff), other then that the only algae I get on the tank is on the glass/leaves and looks very similar to Green Spot Algae. Any ideas what it is/whats causing it/solutions?

My light is an AquaOne Coral Power.
4 x 54w T5 Tubes.


  • 2 x Sunlight tubes
  • 1 x Marine tube
  • 1 x Tropical tube


  • Lighting cycle if I'm working all day is only 5-6 hours at night.
  • Lighting cycle if I'm at home during the day is about 8 hours.
  • Have a small Fluval CO2 Setup with it being on 3-4 hours a day at 1bps
  • I only feed fish once a day, decent amount of flakes with some shrimp pellets for all my catfish.
  • I dose the tank once a week with API Leaf Zone (plant food)

Any feedback is welcome, very appreciative if someone could help me out! lol

Cheers :D

Java moss will be a pest if you don't want it. It's like duck weed once you have it it is hard to get rid of because the filaments break off and go all over the tank and start growing new clumps
