thats the easiest algae to deal with.i have seen it fade away in some cases if you dont do anything .but better to take some steps.it always appears during proper cycling.and what are the steps one must take??
the answer is simple-get some amanos or otos.and i did exactly that.

Its completely a personal opinion Rahul and it all depends on individual point of view, but now that the tank is growing lush and the since the plants will take over very soon, I feel the projected woods wouldve looked good bare without the mosses on them... but I am loving the sight of this tank transform as always!!!

Was referring to something like this as reference. This scape always seemed fascinating to me and I got similar visual vibe in your tank hence suggesting.
