    Here's a new algae I've never seen before

    So... just when I thought I knew all the algae types... I get this stuff: I see the "green spot" algae on the front glass, that's easy to clean... and I see a little bit of the hair algae on the dwarf sag leaves... but that olive green "fuzz" is new to me. And I haven't found anything online...

    Dirty leaves. Any idea what this settlement is?

    What. In the heck. Are these!?

    Hi fellow aquarium hobbyists. I'm new here... I've kept tanks forever, but just never had a need to ask a question until now. It just always seemed someone had already asked it. I have a tank, non-planted 15 gallon freshwater that's been running for about 2 years. I just have a betta...
