    HI I have some sorta Calurpa growwing in my sump just started growing from some LR i got can someone ID for me

    Thanks

    BTW: its a killer in terms of nutrient uptake as i just left it to grow and the back glass of mine that was full of GHA is dissapearing Literally. From fully covering my back pane its now half but what can be seen is that the cheato is slowly dieing away
