Hey everyone, I've only had my 29 gallon running for a few weeks and I'm seeing these weird things on the tips of my java fern windelov. Does anyone know what this is? I found one picture online that looks somewhat similar and it said they were babies. I'm hoping that's the case and not some weird algae :)

It is possible that it is baby ferns. That is how they reproduce. It seems the roots start first and soon you will start seeing the green of tiny baby plants. As they get bigger they will drop off the mother plant, float around and will soon attached themselves to something.
