    Can you post a photo of the moss (what's left of it ) and the SAE just in case its not an SAE.

    In the mean time feed them with squashed freshly cooked peas and fresh washed Iceberg lettuce (not loose leaves in a package as they could contain Chlorine), also any good brand name of Algae pellets.

    Yep, the do eat mosses, I have had similar experiences, couple that with nasty attitude I never kept them again.
    Some people will argue they won't in that case, it can be fairly assumed their fish had been over fed.

    My guess it depend on the moss species, because it does not eat my spiky but it ate my Singapore moss at the same tank.

    I have had SAE's for many years from very active young ones to old lazy ones by that I mean as they get older (in my tank any way) they prefer fish food to any thing else, over the years I have similar reports old SAE get lazy/fussy
