Fuzz Algae: Causes, Prevention, and Treatment

Fuzz algae, a common sight in many aquariums, is a form of algae characterized by its soft, fuzzy, hair-like structure. This green-colored growth typically appears on various surfaces in the aquarium, including plants, decorations, and glass. Although harmless in small quantities, an excessive growth of fuzz algae can hinder the light penetration needed for plant health, and even affect oxygen levels within the tank.
