What happened to my dwarf hairgrass

It looks like two patched of dwarf hairgrass have turned into some kind of solid moss. Pix attached. Has anyone had this happen? Any insights would be appreciated

Looks like algae. It seems to be right under the light. You might try to reduce the light timing. Or you could add a little screen piece right above that spot on the glass to reduce the amount of light. If you don't have window screen, a piece of plastic needle point canvas is easy to cut and cheap, from a local craft store. It just blocks some of the light.
