I feel like these are dinos. I will hopefully be receiving a couple of microscopes today. I will hopefully be able to post more pictures then for a positive ID.

What color do they appear when the LEDs are on? I have read that they can look almost a brownish color but I have never seen any in my experience. So far I have only seen Diatoms, hair algae, film algae, and spirulina (had mistaken it as cyano until I performed the H2O2 test).

Sorry. Looks like I forgot to post the pics.

Could be, unfortunately. A simple indicator test is to syphon some out and see if it reconstitutes into strands like you see in your tank.

Phos and nitrate levels?
