hair in tank
« on: November 02, 2020, 06:06:07 pm »
I have recently started getting hair in my tank.
It doesnt look like any algae pictures I can find.
It looks like black human hair, About 6 inch long. I just notice it tangled in the plants.
I just pull it out of the plants.
I do have green algae on parts of the glass but its under control with carbon and regular maintenance.
Also my tank hasnt a lid

    Could it be (dead?) horsehair worms? What livestock do you have in the tank?
