    They are green algae.. Having them show that your tank is doing well.. as they are one of the closest to real plants.

    A rosy bard or molly will help.

    You mean Chlorella vyulgaris?

    The ones in my tank are darker in colour and much smaller. I can see the resemblance though. Well, the yamatos are not eating it and there are 4 or 5 tufts here and there on my drift wood. I'll leave them alone for now and see how they look.

    I think I have a larger specimen in my office tank.
