What kind of algae

Gwlson7

I have these little Pom poms of algae all over the seiryu stone in my tank. It isn’t on anything else. What kind of algae is it and is there an easy way to get rid of it? I honestly like the look of it, but it seems to be growing faster and faster lately and I want to know how to treat it before it becomes a problem.

Hi Gwlson7,
That algae comes off easy with your fingers and a vacuum.
It is one of the nice algae in my book and many members of my local club that breed fish. It’s a weed or what is also called a plant in the wrong place that’s all.

Your question requires a name other than nice algae. Sorry the closest I can say is it’s probably in the family of “ filamentous “ algae ?

Pull some out each water change and enjoy the Pom poms if they are in a spot you want them.
