So I have this strange little....plant? growing in my tank in the divider hole. What is it and should I get rid of it?

Is that what moss balls are made of? I have a moss ball and some duckweed I quarantined for a few weeks.

Riccia moss is a different plant but a piece can hitch hike on either one of those plants no problems.

Okay, well I'm cool with letting it grow as long as it isn't dangerous. It won't hurt any of my fish/snails, right?

So an update on my moss, it's moved to the holes surrounding the middle one and is growing nicely. Will I be able to remove it without killing it so I could put it on some other object, or should I just let it grow into the tank divider?
