Plant ID please plus algae cure?

Recommended Posts

Have a look a my video -->

What is the plant that reaches the top?

Also how do I get rid of the stringy algae? This is my growout tank and sits outside in partial shade/full sun. Has a bio and organic filter.

The fish are Crimson Spotted Rainbows, Eastern Rainbows, Smelts, Glassfish and Ornate rainbowfish. All are available to swap for any blue-eyes or other types of rainbowfish or small peaceful Australian native.

The plant is;

Potamogeton perfoliatus (Clasping-leaf Pondweed). An interesting native background plant, not often used because many people wrongly believe it needs cold water and fast flow. The interesting wrinkly leaves vary in colour between emerald green and rusty blush under different light conditions. This one is so happy it's flowered at the surface (top of pic, right of center), just not the kind of flower worth noticing...
