Welcome, thanks for joining!

They could possibly be Bristleworms. A picture would help.

Exclamation

I got up this morning to find that I have a black slime looking algae growing in three different locations. How do I get rid of this nasty stuff? Im assuming that im over feeding to cause the bloom?

Overfeeding could be part of the reason. Have you tested your nitrates lately? If there are high nitrates, that is most likely the reason.


I would reccomed doing a water change, that may help.
