What kind of algae is this on my Java moss? And how do I get rid of it?

Not quite sure, but it's common in new tanks/on newly added plants. It's not harmful, and it should go away on its own after a few months or if some algae-eating animals get to it.

I don't think that's algae. At least not most of it. I think those are rhizoids coming off the moss.

Thank you! I just did some research on that and I believe that’s exactly what it is! What a relief, I was so worried I was going to have an algae outbreak.
