any idea what plant this is?

got this tank for free a while back and was already stocked with fish and plants..as you can see, what ever it is is growing while along with what looks like some Anubias.. if this is not an actual plant but hair algae then i will get rid of it but from what i can remember.it was a layer on the bottom back of the tank..if this is an actual plant.how would i go about "trimming" (my mind is lost rite now and cant think of the actual name) it?i left it alone for so long because my fry hide in it but it needs trimming if not to be taken out if not an actual plant.thanks everyone..

20 gallon tank with mollies, tetras and platies. filtered and heated at 78F with 1 T8 6500k bulb running about 8 hours a day.

well i guess i no longer need the info. its java moss. but if anyone knows how to prune these plants let me know or some tips when doing it. my other larger tank i dont prune as the plants are growing just fine in them. so i lack the experience.
