So a new algae seems to have popped up in my divided 10g. For a while, I was fighting with slime algae. Got that under control by reducing the lighting a couple of hours.
Now just today I noticed something new. Looks like possibly green hair algae? Last water change was about 30% on Sept. 3, and I didn't notice it then.

What might this be caused by, and is it another "bad" algae (ie taking oxygen out of the water)?



Interesting, I just noticed right now it's this side that has the most algae. This half of the tank sort of has the light focused over it (because of the filter, I can't get the light over both halves). The other side has very little algae of any sort in it.

Thanks Shaobo - Contemplated putting it in the plant section but wasn't sure if algae fell into that category ;)

Thanks for the link Gyrus. Don't think it's Blanket Weed, but perhaps spirogyra or Rhizoclonium, since there is not a whole lot of water flow.
