    Hi all-
    I am a first-time fish keeper. My roommate and I have observed this growing in the corner of the tank. Can anyone I.D. it? Is it harmful?

    Also, the tank was established in late January.

    Thanks!
    -Brittany

    Welcome Brittany! I also am unsure as to what you are seeing in the pic.

    Thank you everyone! It appears to be light green-brown with white heads, and almost jelly looking in consistency. I apologize for the low-quality photo - my camera is rather old.
