A couple of queries...?

Hi there, just a few minor problems in my tank.. Any advise welcome!

So my java moss has grown to nearly double it's original size but it is mostly brown with just green tips? Is this normal or am I missing something?

I think I have a patch of blue green algae about the size of a dollar coin on my bog wood and a few tiny patches on the substrate, how quickly will this spread? What's the best way to get rid?

I lost one angel last week, 2 left, but the bigger of the two is fin nipping the other and is looking quite tatty now? Should I remove the bully or the tatty one, or just wait and see?

A couple of days ago I planted some HC ( to replace crystalwort the gourami destroyed) and dwarf hair grass but my dwarf gourami keeps pulling it out to try to make a bubble nest, which he has failed a dozen times, how can I stop this as he is undoing all my hard work could I remove the female as building is all he does everyday for the last 4 weeks?
Thanks again folks.

Thanks again all.

In order to answer your first 2 questions it would be nice to know a little info about your tank. What type of lighting do u use and how much? Are you injecting CO2 and by what means? Tank size/flow/filtration? What are you dosing, if applicable?
