Is this black beard algae or miss? It is growing with my java moss but looks different.

If there is an imbalance in light / nutrients that is triggering this and it threatens to take over you need to fix that. Otherwise just leave it.

I managed to remove the source that caused my BBA outbreak several months ago. I have left some of it on the wood as it looks good and is causing no problems.
