Moss/Grass/Fur on LR?

Hey guys,

Just wondering if I could get an I.D. of this grassy/mossy looking stuff growing on my LR. I have included two pictures that were both taken using the flash so that the color of the stuff could be seen. I have two patches of red "grass" on one rock and then on another rock I have a type of black "grass" that seems to be taking over that rock.

Just need to know what the heck this stuff is and how I get rid of it. I haven't been able to I.D. it myself.

not sure of the exact species, but they are turf algaes. I have seen reports of the red turfs really running rampant in tanks.

Oh, joy...

I think they came in with the last batch of LR I put in the tank.. GRRRR!!!

What is the easiest way to get rid of them? Wonder if a Blenny would take care of them...

The reports I have seen...nothing will touch it, it's too tough and wirey. Personally, I'd take it out and take a steal brush to it....but wait and see if someone can positively ID it or has other experiences.

Sounds good to me. But if all I get is bad news, the steel brush is coming out...

Kevin,
You may be seeing the pics but I'm certainly not. Is the site broken again?

Nope, but the style your currently using is. We re-uploaded the files that were causing problems and it was resolved on the style I use (black soul) but apparently not for fisubtext. For now try switching styles and we'll get fisubtext up and going tomorrow.
