BBA, Black Brush Alage. Pain in the ass. The only way I got rid of it last time was to use Alage Exit solution and I planted a shed loads more plants lol.

Seems to be attacking the Glosso now though which is gutting cos I spent a fortune on it.

Wish my tank was still like it was :(

But it doesn't look like hair, exactly like a big green blanket that coats everything.

Hmm dunno about that one. I did have a BM to a blog that had all the different types but dont have it on this PC. Try a google search for an index of aquarium algae. If it is a good one it should give you the cause and any remedies.
