Does anyone have a picture of what algae growth in a f/w tank looks like. I have some growth but it is white gowth on my plants instead of green. Thanks

Well, there are different kinds of algae. Most common are green algae I suppose. There are also brown algae and black "hairy" algae (as someone has it framed on Fish Lore, lol - I liked that name, "hairy", lol). I think you can find photos of algae on plant geek, try it.

P.S. There is also a type of algae called "cyano-bacteria" that are bluish algae and which are TOXIC to fish!

Here's a great article to help you identify different types of algae. If you could post a picture, that would help a lot.
