What are these?

Recommended Posts

My tank is fourteen days old, this morning I saw the glass was covered with these little tufts of brownish or greenish "hairs" for lack of a better word. What could these be? I assume some sort of algae but they don't look like the diatoms in my tank, any way it could be the beginnings of GHA?

Beginning of hair algae most likely.

Thanks, If I'm not mistaken some fish and invertebrates will eat them, right?

Yes but it is better to remove manually, as it will spread quick and most grazers wont be able to keep up with it

Thanks, I'll definitely remove what I see from the glass.
