It's probably thread or hair algae.
Florida Flag fish will gobble this stuff up.
Def Not Thread Algae Or Any Of That I Know How To Cure That But Thanks
How about good circulation and some floss in your filter.
..............still think its hair algae..............
150 watts on a 7 gallon tank? Holy cow you're really in deep with that one.

Wow, I missed that one!
well im used to dealing with high light i love high light im a light feind
but thats what the uv sterlizer is for so this algae problem that i have is not bad at all
in fact this algae is not prevelant at all
it grows slow and is destroyed easliy i was just wondering if it can be
handled or if i just gotta keep dealing with it
so but its not a big prob at all
but if you think you can help then pls do

a UV sterilizer wont do anything about established algae growing in the tank.
They only deal with spores and green water algae that pass thru it.
