Is this growth???
 
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...

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?
