    hey guys,
    wandering if anybody could ID this algae for me please.
    its been there ages and its in a couple of other places on the wood. its not spreading or growing any larger and certainly not a problem, in fact i kinda like it! :crazy:

    it just doesn't seem to fit any of the pictures/descriptions on here

    Cladophora. Looks quite pretty for an algae. If you want rid carefully remove it by the root and then check your CO2 levels and distribution.

    thanks james.
    yeah it is pretty. shame all algae isn't like that.
    the co2/flow has since been sorted.
    maybe one of those pics could be used in your excellent algae guide as there is no pic of it? ;0)
