question about plants turning a bit red/brown

im noticing my xmas moss and hornwort some are turning redish or brownish, is this do to lack of light? possible algae grown on it? some of the stems are green as they could be others are all brownish/redish tone.

I thank you all for your attention and time!

my xmas moss did that when it was getting too much light. i hid it under my driftwood and it turned dark green again.
