Does anyone have an idea of what this algae is? This tank is about 3 months old so I’m not too worried about it from cycling but I’ve had almost every algae possible and have never seen this one. I’m thinking green cyano?

Beginning of green hair algae.
Addition of turbo snails, astrea snails and margarita snails will help.
Ive had great success with liquid vibrant to rid of tis type of algae

Thank you! I have some vibrant I’ll throw in there.
Use vibrant at night and dose 80% of recommended. Pull chaeto if you have any as it will destroy chaeto.

I’ll give it a try, do you notice better results when dosing at night?
Yes, as the algae needs light for growth and the vibrant removes its requirements for growth
