Algae are autotrophic i. e. They can produce their own food in presence of sunlight. Whereas fungi are heterotrophic i. e. They depend on dead and decaying organisms. Algae need sunlight & water so they grow in places where they get both like river banks (freshwater) or other water body surfaces even saltwater. Fungi stay away from sunlight, they grow in moist, damp, dark places. Algae can range from unicellular to multicellular with single nucleus whereas fungi can be unicellular to multicellular with a single nucleus or many nucleus i. e. Multinucleate. Algae have cell wall made-up of mainly cellulose & fungi's cell wall is madeup of chitin. Algae contains plastics in their cell which fungi lack. Both belong to domain eukaryota but algae belongs to kingdom protista & fungi belongs to kingdom fungi. Algae are non-parasitic but fungi are parasitic. Reproduction is asexual in both but fungi form spores which algae don't. Examples of algae are oscillatoria (BGA), chara, sargassum etc. Examples of fungi are puccinia, yeast, mushrooms, aspergillus etc.

Algae are photosynthetic organisms that have chlorophyll and can make their own food. Algae live mainly in water environments and need sunlight to survive. Algae can include different types of organisms, such as green algae, diatoms and dinoflagellates. On the other hand, fungi are decomposers that survive by either consuming dead matter or eating off other organisms, which are their hosts. Since fungi do not have chlorophyll, these organisms cannot make food as algae do. They are heterotrophs, while algae are autotrophs. Fungi live in soil, air and water and can thrive both in sunlight and darkness. Some types of fungi are mushrooms, mold and yeast. read less
