Thread: Mystery plant?

So ahh... What's that white-colored stuff on all of the branches? My best guess was some sort of mosses, so I posted it in this part of the forum. Does anyone have any idea what it is? Curiosity is just killing me right now."Dear god: Let me learn, so I don't kill these fish."

No, and I wish I did. Algae was my second guess, but it almost looks as if it's there for a reason."Dear god: Let me learn, so I don't kill these fish."

is this your tank? if not it looks like frobit or some other floater but im guessing the bit, i have some in my 55g (half is covered) looks great from the bottom and has roots like that. also in the pic you can see the plants floating at the top.
could also be dwarf water lettuce...KING OF THE GOLD BARBS RAWR!!!!
I wonder if i plant one of my tiger barbs would the demon seed grow to a full tree?
gotta love them bunnies!

No, it's not mine. I saw it on some small forum, but it seems the person didn't have any information on it, just a link that didn't work.
But I see that there's either frogbit or water lettuce at the top - and I think it's water lettuce - but it looks like there's something else growing on the wood. Maybe it's string algae, or dead BBA. I wish I knew, because for some reason I really like the look of it."Dear god: Let me learn, so I don't kill these fish."

Hard to tell w/o a closer picture, my guess would be white mold or fungus.

You're probably right, talldutchie.
I was just wondering because it looks intentional, and I've never really seen something like that before."Dear god: Let me learn, so I don't kill these fish."
