I found out why my Java Moss is brown. It's not Brown Algae, but another one.

I attached a picture, help me identify it please.

Can be Cladophora?

Thanks

Most of my java moss has browning spots but a lot of new shoots too. I was told that old becomes brown and it's fine, as long as there's new growth. I'll definitely follow this thread, as my tank mostly consist of java moss.

Seems like there is little information about it used in aquariums but I see that the Germans have tried it. As interesting as it is I would try to grow it if I were you.

Monster Fish, yeah, it is! http://www.mikroskopie-forum.de/index.php?topic=17828.0
Thank you, you're real pro!
This algae is bad or good?

Hunter, it can be brown algae too. You need some flow on java moss and syphon it.
Depends if you want it everywhere. It can become a weed and attach to everything in your tank.

Hmmm...

So I removed some, put it in the small bowl with ferts (API Leaf Zone and Flourish comprehensive) on direct sunlight.

Do I need to add liquid carbon?

I'll try to create a ball from it and put in on my tree.
You think sunlight and liquid carbon will help? (in a glass bowl).

Nerite snails, Oto catfish or shrimps will eat it?
