Friend or Foe

Theulli

I have small volunteer plants growing in my new tank - they look like some feather macro algae I have seen in the store, but which I have never put in my tank! There are a few on the glass and a couple popping out of the substrate.

Anyone know what they are?

Thanks!

Not sure if this will work, but you could download a plan identification app for your phone to see if it will tell you! I've never used it on aquatic plants, but it works great with land plants.

I have this stuff pop up onto my glass from time to time, too - I don't know exactly what it is, but it's never been particularly invasive for me, and it usually goes away as the tank matures. I always considered it in the same vein as diatoms or hair algae - just there.
