what algae is this/name this plant
Hey fellow aqua gardeners,
This algae I've noticed has began to grow on a few of my plants and
other things. It has long wispy hairs (I'm thinking hair algae) about a
1.5 max in length. It has no color though -- kinda grayish white. It
appears to only grow off my driftwood and the plants attached to it.
The leaves it grows on turn transparent. What is it? It's a real pain
because I tear it off one day and it has grown back the next.
I have this plant that bewilders me as to what genus it belongs to. Its
kind of a mix between a Anubias and a Philodendron (a terrestrial
plant). The leaves are almost perfect isosceles triangles (like a
Philodendron), green (slightly variegated), and about 2.5 - 3 inches in
length. It has a creeping root system like an Anubias nana. When I
bought it there were two parts: 1. was a complete adult plant as far as
I could tell 2. was seed with a couple of small leaves. IMHO, its a
slow growing plant (about as fast as an Anubias nana). What is it?
thanks in advance,
