    Hi All

    I have a few questions for the pros.

    Is the greenish growth algae? Do I leave it or pull it out?

    Is this green algae. Do I pull it out as I have this in a few places around the tank. Do you get something that eats this?

    What is this greenish bubble thing?

    the green bubble algae
    Do not pop it.

    Use the rounded back end of a teaspoon to carefully work under it and to lift it out.
