I recently moved some stuff around and had an explosion of this. It looks like macroalgae on the glass but I have never seen it before in any of my tanks. Its getting on frags now too. Hair algae looks finer and thinner in material and this is stringy and bent like stringy macroalgae. Its a little thinner than chaetomorph.

Can you tell me if this is nusance algae because if not im going to shave it off glass and put in my sump.





Much appreciated..

Interesting. I would say not cheato as well. As soverjas mentioned, there are many types of algae. If it is simply growing on your back glass and you like the look, I would say leave it with caution. Keeping any eye on everything. Other wise, scrap away. You probably had a spike in nitrates and phosphates while moving things around that cause this bloom. It may die off once all the nutrients is used up.
