I would say it could be BBA except that it's bright green. I have BBA in
and I don't remove it as it covers and disguises my filter equipment nicely.
My tank setup
has healthy plants so it grows slowly and rarely spreads (never onto plants)
and if it ever
does (very rarely) pop up somewhere I don't want it I give it a little shot
of Hydrogen Peroxide.
Quite unlike when your tank is unhealthy and it springs up everywhere. So
BBA can grow like
you describe but I'm not sure about the colour. Maybe the same stuff that
makes Moss Balls?
Actually, the beautiful green algae I have is a more emerald green color
than any of the others I have seen, more like the green hair algae that grows in
marine tanks. I have thriving moss balls and they are a very different
texture and color also. It almost looks silky because the filaments are very
fine. The growth habit differs from black brush which grows in tufts. This
stuff grows in a very slowly widening patch.
