My Flame Red Gourami always picks on my java moss that has a little bit of hair algae on it. He does it with my other plants as well, sometimes plucking leaves out...Do Gouramis really eat algae? He's currently picking on the java moss right now even if it is already lights out.

They do, some species more than others but as long as your not just feeding them algae based foods it's fine. They also will eat some plants, getting floaters to work with them around can be a pain at times. :D
