That is nothing to fuss over. And that is not brush algae, the "stringy moss-like" algae is hair. Easy to deal with, just pull it off but don't worry about leaving some.

I only get this in two tanks, at the top among the Pennywort, and I find it very attractive. It really is like a moss. I thin it out periodically. The other day it had become so think on the surface of my 10g that the tank was in near-darkness. I just grabbed hold and out it came, with a stem of Pennywort too, but I have plenty more to replace it. Every week I toss Pennywort out into the compost bin.

Alright you've made me breathe a little easier. I was worried because this has developed over the course of a few days, so I was afraid it was going to cover the pennywort in a few weeks. I'm glad its not a major issue though, Thanks!!

I just wanted to thank you Byron, since cutting my lights back 1 hour, my algae issue has just about disappeared.

Heres a quick update on the tank. I added 4 Panda corys this week. This completes my stocking for this tank. :)

Im debating adding a little more pygmy chain sword to the front of the tank. Also, my ludwigia is getting a really nice red tint up near the surface, its really pretty!

Very lovely indeed. I would not add more pygmy chain sword, the one(s) you have will settle and send out runners like you can't imagine. One plant over-ran my 90g in a couple months.

Some new shots of the tank. I need to trim a few plants. >.<

Theres a picture of the redness of the rotala, a picture of the pennywort, and one of my favorite things about this tank is the Lily. For all of those who dont think fish feel more comfortable under floating plants, have a look at these pictures. Even with the cover of pennywort, my tetra LOVE to hang out under the leaves of the lily.. its so cute to watch.
