I think I know which algae you're talking about. LOL ... I like the way you named it, "hairy" hehe ;D In fact I have this algae growing on my driftwood from time to time. I remove it by hand or with small tweezers. They're easy to remove. Don't scratch them off, just pull them. I think they're an attractive type of algae. I think I might let them grow on my driftwood - they're kind of cool.

you could try doing a Google search to ID the algae and find out more about it. I'm not familiar with that kind...

Omorrokh, somewhere in the "Plants" section, Off-Ice is talking about this algae type. And he has a picture of it posted there (black with pink algae - very interesting photo).

This is the kind of algae that grows on my driftwood, only it's all black.

Whoa, that's pretty sweet. 8) Now I remember seeing it. Of course all I know about it is how it looks...
