Looks like algae to me :^(

Would suggest finding clean moss and trying again!

surely there must be a reason this has occured.
i would rather find the cause and a cure than just waste money on new moss thats going to become covered in algae again.
would excel spot dosing work?

i think its staghorn.
i read here http://www.aquariumalgae.blogspot.cz/ that it may be old dieing leaves leaking nutrients.
this would make sense as the old fissidens leaves are decaying.
ill do my best to remove old leaves and if i get my hands on excel/easy carbo will start to spot dose.
