it does break very easily and my algae fish are not touching the stuff. I read some posts about adding Excel and it acts like an algicide and blasts it with carbo and Co2. I do not have a microscope to check it out. I wish I had a digital camera so I could show you what it looks like
If it pulls off easily it may be thread algae, it also grows fast in very long green strands. Best way I have found to get rid of it is pull as much off by hand, then do a 50% water change, then dose your ferts up to recommended amounts. As with any algae keep your nutrients in balance and C02 between 20-30ppms. There is a thread on using Excel to get rid of algaes, but I'm not to found in overdosing any fert.
