I recently discovered some algae on my Hygrophilia polysperma as well as my Java Fern.

Below are some pictures:

H. polysperma leaves covered by this

Anyways, I was wondering if anyone could provide a good ID on this algae, as I'm not sure what it is myself, and if anyone has any proactive solutions, that'd be great to know as well

Here's an update with some more pictures as well





I was thinking diatoms, but this does not seem to be the case, as I never knew that diamtoms could be this invasive. Also, if it were diatoms, why would my floating Hydrocotyle leucocephalia show signs of this?

Thanks for the quick reply though, Tom
