Seaweed growing in tank


So I have green seaweed growing in my tank. At first it was just a little peice/leaf/whatever you want to call it, but now there's some others. Its not overgrowing my tank or anything, i just want to know if its okay in my tank and if any fish will eat it.

Well, its green, there's about 6 different little leafs, all about 1-2 inches tall, the largest is about as wide as your thumb, the smallest is as wide as a pencil. Its flat (so thin, not thick), growing up towards the surface.

I don't really know any other way to describe it.

Look up caulphera prolifera. Does it look like that?

If so the fish will eat it and it is safe. You could also look at halmedia, and mermaids fan.

Seaweed are good because they can be food source to some of your fish. Also, some of them are good reducing nitrates and phosphates in your tank.

Okay, its not Halmedia. It might be Mermaid's Fan Plant, although its a bit taller and skinner than that, and darker.

It looks a bit similar to that, but it's not on a vine-thing.
