Is this growth algae?
I've never seen white algae before.. It's constantly moving so very hard to get a picture of it. It's white. I see it a few other places in the tank. But this is the biggest spot.

Fresh Water of course.

Very odd... I'm not really sure if it's an algae growth or not... But it almost looks like a dead shrimp. Or like the molt from a shrimp... Maybe not? Lol sorry if that sounds crazy but I swear it almost looks like it has lots of little legs.Thats my best guess... I think... Weird...

And just before you laid dead weight upon its shores, I stung you in the face for that's the nature of my core.

On second thought.. I take that back, I just remembered you said it was other places too... Go me.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

I've cleaned it out and got any little spots I see of it on plants..

I noticed it is some moss I bought. Not sure I can remove it from the moss. Should I just throw the moss away?
