Is this an algae or higher plant?
I've had the following... thing... growing around in my tank, particularly
out of the H. difformis. It looks to have a little more structure than an
algae, but I'm not sure. It grows (usually) in a single long strand
extending out into the open areas of the tank. When I pull it out, it's
embedded well into the stand of plants, however. The strand has sort-of
nodules maybe every half-inch to inch along its length. I thought these
nodules were tiny leaves at first. I looked at them under a 10x loupe
tonight, though, and they looked like small bladders or some kind of more
generic node. There's a (rather poor) picture here:
(sorry, the digital camera didn't want to focus that close-in, I think)
Any ideas what this might be? I don't know that it looks particularly
horrible in the tank, rather strange and different.
