    As I can't see clearly the first 2 issue, I can't comment. The 3rd one is hair algae growing on your hair grass. Best to eliminate by using hydrogen peroxide solution you can purchase in 100ml bottle at local pharmacies like Watsons. And followed by Seachem Excel dose.

    Google for this remedy to eliminate most algae types but easier to treat in a quarantine tank as your Hair grass is in a SS mesh. This 1-2 knock out treatment will damage your mosses and if overdose will also kill your fishes. So go google the dosage.

    Hi greenie, thanks for the reply! Really appreciate the tips
    . For the hair algae, reason for growth is too much/too intense lighting right? I also attached zoomed in photos of the first 2 issues. Worm is near the tip of the tweezers! And the white string is at the middle of the first picture in an almost curve shape!
