    Ive never had this kind of algae in my tank. What kind is this and how can i get rid of it? My tank is still cycling and I don't have any fish in it at the moment. 6 1467030446936.jpg1467030455041.jpg1467030462381.jpg 0 gallon tank 78 degrees lights are on for only 7 to 8 hours a day.

    It looks like diatoms if ur tank is still cycling then it could just be diatoms on a fungus that grows when a tank is first cycling. I wouldnt worry about it until ur tank is fully cycled then worry about it lol

    Yes, it's harmless but if you don't like the look vacuum it out. My cherry barbs love to graze on it.
