What the heck is this??

Cleaning my tank tonight and noticed these spaghetti looking things on my driftwood. Itís only on this one driftwood. Fish are all happy and content. Any ideas?!

Are they moving, like worms?

They look like algae type plant growth. I feel like I saw something like that recently, I'll try and remember where.

Nope they donít move unless the water around them is moving, ie filling the tank or swishing water around it. Otherwise itís just there. I looks rooted into the wood 🤷🏻*♀️

It seems much thicker than Staghorn Algae? Search out some pics and see how it stacks up.

Personally if it is a cool think I hate just randomly killing stuff in the aquarium. But cool could also be a pain too, BBA is one.

So the good news is if it doesn't seem to be a problem, it doesn't seem to be an emergency. So a few days or weeks to figure it out maybe. Also sometimes wood grows stuff and after a while it just disappears. My daughter had some growing "mushrooms" type things. So it is also possible it is a fungal growth. That doesn't necessarily mean a bad thing.

And it can be killed if needed.
