Is this Moss or Algae Threads?

Unread postby paule » Tue Jul 12, 2016 3:34 pm

Hi,

I have something weird growing on my Christmas Moss. I was happy that it was growing roots or something for anchoring, but then i realised it is growing way too much. Is it a part of the Moss or some Invasive Algae? Please help in identify.

Cheers!

yes you should not have these in you tank, it will spread on other plants. Take the portion and clean it, then put rest moss inside.
