What is this?


I tied some flame moss to a piece of driftwood and this started growing. Does anyone know what this is?

That appears to be riccia which has a habit of popping up wherever it wants. If it is for sure riccia, I wouldn't leave it with the flame moss since it grows pretty fast.

Thanks for the replies. After Googling pictures of riccia, I'm pretty sure that's what it is. I removed it from the tank. Appreciate the help.
