    I just noticed this water sprite with strands like spider web hanging from it. Can anyone tell me what it is?
    Thank you!

    Do you have a pic? But yep, it sounds like hair algae alright.

    Thanks for your quick answers! I haven't figured out how to post a picture yet. Assuming it hair algae, how bad is it? How do I get rid of it if I don't have shrimp?
