Anyone know?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know what this type of algae is? It’s not unlike some hair algae, but is growing super compact in mats. I’ve been able to trim it and place it between rocks. The shrimp love picking stuff out of it. The Kuhli loaches seem to have tunnels underneath it, because they pop out of holes in it every now and then to grab food. I’m starting to like it, but don’t know what it is.



My sponge filter has a big mat growing on it

I’m not sure what kind it is. I used to have in a few tanks. I loved it. The fish would graze on all the time. My discus would pick at all day and keep it very short. I wish I could have you ship some to me. It is definitely similar to Marino. It could be the same.
