Hello again and what is this?

Lol ok second post in less than 5 minutes...

This question also relates to the 35g freshwater tank where I asked about the appearance of Ramshorn snails.

Tank specifics... I am running two sun/sun 404B canister filters on this 35g bowed tank, Finnex 24/7 lighting, Bluetooth heater and backup, whisper 100 air pump...the tank is crystal, water changes every two weeks...etc.
8 cory's, 7 cherry barbs, green spotted pleco, golden nugget pleco

Along with the snail(s) that suddenly appeared out of nowhere, I notice these balls of fluff growing or caught on the stems of some of the plastic plants directly under the output flow....at first I thought it was just dirt, but it never seemed to change place even after cleaning or water changes, there were only a few but one has continued to grow in size and in my opinion this thing is alive, it reacts like a weed or anemone Ö here's the vid...let me know


Hmmm... the site wont allow me to attach a vid, here's a couple of pics ...lol well that didn't work either...k I must have some forum restrictions until I confirm or do something....I'll be back with this issue Ö I hope

Hi TomSawyer,
If the fluff that is near the output of the filter is black is almost certainly black beard algae. ( dark blue)
