I have a growth in my guppy tank that sounds like Cladophora (blanket weed algae) from http://www.theplantedtank.co.uk/algae.htm
It's a dense bright green mat that grows slowly and does not seem to spread to other areas of the tank. It's like tiny java moss (in the photo bottom) but kinda crunchy. The RCS and snails don't seem to eat it, but love to groom it (there is a trumpet snail on top in photo). Is it an algae, or some kind of moss?

Thanks

I suppose if it is Cladophora it's the least undesirable algae (assuming there is such a thing) since it = Japanese Moss Ball. I must have picked up a fragment from somewhere. So is it normal for moss balls to cling to surfaces?
