Fissidens is really prone to algae. It's a beautiful moss but needs to be very clean. You can still save it. Remove as much algae as you can and give it a trim

I'm also in socal. I have found that we can run undersized heaters here for the 5 days that it's cold outside. We typically have more trouble with cooling water here.
