white algae on java moss?

Tank has high light 216w t5ho, 55g, co2 30+. Since I put this moss into my 55g I have some white algae it looks like on the moss. My SAE, cherrys shrimps and also ottos don't want anything to do with it how do I get rid of it?

Could it be Bryozoa? It looks very similar to me. That or dying BBA.

Without Algae, death of mankind would be inevitable.

Don't think its BBA never had it in the tank before. When I first moved it to the 55g tank 3days later I got that white stuff I took some out and put in beach with water nothing it was still on there I even put straight bleach still nothing lol this stuff don't want to come off. I think ill try excel today with a patch of moss and see if that does the trick I hope.

I don't know really but it almost looks like some sort of fungus...
