Algae identification

Magtom

Hi all-
Can anyone tell me what kind of algae is starting to grow in my 40 gallon breeder? I just started using Easy Green once a week two weeks ago and I saw the algae a few days ago. I have some dwarf sag, Vals and crypt Wendtii. The light is a Fluval planted 3.0, on for 6 hours a day.

That’s not algae it’s hydra. As long as you don’t have baby fish or shrimp in that tank it’s ok but you still might want to try getting rid of it

Thank you! I just read about it, and other than it being very cool that it is one of the most ancient of animal groups on earth, I’m not happy to have it in my tank! I’m going to (try to) get rid of it.
