I suppose what I am really getting at is, what are the good/ bad points about this stuff being in my tank? I was tempted to put some in a non planted tank to see how it grows in there. Where did it come from? Am I overdosing ferts? A small amount of hair algae has been there for a while also, doesnt seem to spread much either, I think the flow and reg w/c are holding it where it is, I am happy for these things to exist in my tank under controlled circumstances as they are gonna use any excess nutrients, as they do not spread fast ( I know hair algae should, I just have 1 small patch unchanged for weeks) I can't be far off, is there anything I should look for that could be causing this? Or should I continue not to panic as these fast growing things are not really growing?
It's amazing how easy maintenance is. If done regularly and thoroughly
