    Huh, ingesting. I'm leaning towards the macro algae too, especially with how fast it's growing.

    I looked up the nemastoma & those things are sweet. That's what it looks like from a lil search. Sounds like a sweet find. I want some for my tank now lol.

    After looking at pictures, I will agree that I do indeed have nemastoma. Thanks for the help everybody, now to just let it grow. It looks pretty neat in pictures of it being quite large, so I'm going to hope it does that.

    Nemastoma sounds like some type of cancer.
