- Filamentous Algae
Aggregations of one-celled aquatic plants that grow in long strings or mats.
Varieties of filamentous algae can be either attached or free floating and often to choke canals, weirs, and other structures.
However, this form of algae also provides habitat for various small animals.
Filamentous algae got all over my water filter and clogged it right up. After that, I had to lick dew off plants. A couple of them took it the wrong way.
