Hello, i have these little critters booming in my planted tank. I have been trimming plants that have them but cant seem to irradiate it. The closest research i can figure is hydra? But im not convinced. If anyone could throw me some feedback, id greatly appreciate it.

Welcome to FL

What critters are you referring to? I don't see any??? Are you talking about the black hairy stuff on your plants? Thats Black Beard Algae / Hair algae.

Yeah its a nuisance - I've dealt with some myself. How long has your tank been running? What is its current occupants? Light/Heavily planted?
I have found that there are several things that can keep it under control, shorter photoperiods ( even split photo periods of lighting ) phosphate levels, Nitrates, dosing with Seachem EXCEL etc.

There are lots of different ways to combat it. Good luck!
