    So far this is only presenting on my Vallisneria, who’s not growing very well. It’s been 4 months and it’s never put out new growth or runners.

    Black beard algae.

    Cut off the contaminated leaves and do a 80-90% water change and complete gravel clean each day for a week. Clean the filter too.
