It would help the process along (ie make it go much faster), but strictly speaking you don't need CO2 for mosses.

So the moss wouldn't mess anything up? What about my fish ( 5 Platies 5 mollies 6 guppies) would they be affected before or after?

Moss actually benefits the tank, it provides shelter, a place to forage, and helps remove nitrogenous waste from the water.

An appropriate level of co2 won't hurt fish.
