Hey guys can anyone help me identify this algae? I’m pretty sure it’s some sort of hair algae. It doesn’t grow on my rocks to much but it loves my frag plugs and it annoys my corals and is starting to grow on some of them like my cloves and gorgo. It grows some on the sand bed but not to much honestly it is mainly on frag plugs! It’s definitely brown and some is long some is short.
