That looks like marimo that either is getting too much light or has another algae infesting it from the look of the discolored patches.

My 55 gallon low-tech community tank!

Equipment:
55 Gallon Tank
Jebo Internal Canister Filter (bought used; label was scratched off and I haven't found one like it)
36" Finnex Light
Eco-complete

Flora:
Myriophyllum Mattogrossense
Cryptocoryne wendtii
Tiger Lotus
Java Fern
Trident Java Fern
Anchor Moss
Fissidens Fontanus
Anubias nana
Marimo
Some kind of Sword Plant
Pygmy Chain Sword
Micro Sword
Bacopa Caroliniana
Micranthemum 'Monte Carlo'
Salvinia Minima

Fauna:
1 Neon Tetra (last of his school)
12 Cardinal Tetras
8 Gold Tetras
5 Celestial Pearl Danios
4 Otos
5 Dwarf Neon Rainbowfish
6 Pygmy Hatchets
1 Giant Danio (LFS accidentally added him to a batch of Microdevario kubotai for another tank)
4 Kuhli Loaches
3 Zebra Loaches
4 Honeycomb Catfish
2 Bolivian Rams
10 Amanos
2 Bamboo Shrimp
2 Vampire Shrimp
5 Red Lip Nerites
1 Tiger Nerite
Several MTS

No ferts for this tank, just lights on from 6:00am to 8:00pm, with a four hour rest period from 10:00am to 2:00pm. It's been running for almost two years now, and all plants seem to still be thriving. Some back wall algae, but I like it that way for the otos/nerites.
