Is this a Moss?

I decided not to post this as part of my photo journal, because there aren't a lot of responses to that thread.

I set up a Moss wall a few weeks ago, and ordered some Java Moss. I put half the moss into the wall, and the other half into a very low tech (no CO2, no dosing, Med Light) 10g. The moss is taking off on the wall, where it was getting light. I have five of these bunches of bright green growth on the wall, which doesn't look anything like the rest of the Java Moss. I really like how it is growing, and I think it looks great as part of the wall.

What is it? There isn't any that I can see in the 10 g. I would imagine it is a tag along with the moss, but it could be a type of Java moss growth in Higher light/CO2, or it chould be a spore or seed from my other plants in the tank (it looks a bit like water sprite, which I have a bit of.

Any ideas

Thanks for the responses! I have had snails tag along with plants, but this is a great bonus! From what I have read about it, Riccia can be grown floating, or as a foreground plant, if weighted down. Has anyone tried to see if they can grow well in a wall? It is pearling nicely so I think I will leave it there until I see it suffering.

I can't seem to get to the picture... clicking the link directly, and cutting and pasting both give me an error page.

I'll see what the problem is when I get home. Blogs, which is where the photo is stored, and Forums are blocked at work...Go figure how I can access this forum.
