Water quality

So I have a cat and anyone else that does knows cat hair gets everywhere.
So I was just wondering how bad it is to have some cat hair floating in the tank?

If it's not meant to be there, probably not good. Have you considered some kind of tops ? Vacuum more often ? Shave the kitty ?

Have glass tops but I have an inch gap in the back for air circulation
And the filter sock gets it out but I still see a piece of hair every now and then

I have dogs and they shed a lot and every now and then I see a piece floating so i just scoop it out with a net! I dont think it can cause any serious effects but if you ever see a piece just get it out with a net

I've got 5 pugs, which are just as bad, if not worse, than cats.... If you've got furry animals, it's inevitable you're going to get some hair in your tanks. IMO, I've never had it cause any problems that I'm aware of, and I just pick it out when I see it. More of an annoyance than anything else......
