Guppies eating Java Moss Algae?

They seem to LOVE eating the algae from my java moss. It's like a white cloudy substance.

I've only had the java moss for a week so I wanted to know if it stunted the growth of the java moss in any way? I heard of people using a tooth brush to rid the java moss of algae but if it's not a big problem, I wouldn't mind leaving it for the guppies to munch on.

Thanks

I can't say what it is for sure, but if it's white and cloudy it's not likely to be algae. Usually if it's white, it's fungus growing.

Hmmm. Maybe a nutrient deficiency or something?
