******** NOT TALKING ABOUT THE MOSS IN THE 3RD PHOTO, THAT IS THE TANK WITH A PROBLEM ON THE WATER PARAMETER ********
also i have a question about my tank water parameter.... my ph is 7.2, ammonia is 0.25, nitrite is at 0.5 is this bad? the nitrite is what i was more wondering on... i have plants in the tank a fair amount (see picture below) and i dose Seachems Comp. also in the tank so could that be the reason for a high nitrite level?

Hard to tell what moss it is unless you take a piece of it and put in on a white paper and snap a picture.

But it deifnitely is not flame moss. Because flame moss grows upwards in a flame kind of way...

It has fronds like Christmas, but Christmas grows downwards.

I'd say its most like Taiwan.

Also. If you're showing ammonia and nitrite, you never cycled the tank properly. I'd remove any fish / inverts and try to facilitate the cycle.
