White fuzz on plant roots

TheFishFella

Heyo! I was wondering if anyone might know what this white fuzz is on my water sprite?? At the moment I believe it’s only on the roots. I don’t think it’s hair algae, but I guess I could be wrong. Should it be something to worry about? Should it be removed?

When zoomed in it just looks like small fine roots growing from the main roots.

I’ve always called them root hairs in my mind because they look so soft and fluffy. I looked it up and turn out that’s the official name...

This is my first time having water sprite, didn’t know they did this!! I’m a novice when it comes to aquarium plants as you can tell haha
