I guess I got some pretty fresh seeds, because they germinated in 10 days!

Sundews. I got them from MaxVft, he was kind enough to give me a packet of them for free.

The Capillaris "Emeralds Envy"seeds? I actually saved about a third of that packet(don't tell anyone ;) ), and put them also into sphagnum. None have germinated yet, sadly. I may have seedlings, due to the fact that they blend into the color of the algae.

Yea, they are quite hard to see. Mine might have germinated faster because they are close to the warm light. Also can I use a sulfur fungicide for algae on seedlings? How? I also made a post about this question.

Mine are also only about 4 inches away from my extremely hot grow light, but it could also be because I sowed them a couple days after you did. Here they are at the moment(sorry for bad pic):

As for fungicide, you really don't need it. The fungus/mold is harmless, and as you acclimate the seedlings to lower humidity(explained here: http://www.growsundews.com/sundews/Germ ... _Seed.html), the mold and fungus will eventually die off. Technically, you start cutting holes into the saran wrap/ ziploc bag you are using gradually over the course of a couple weeks, and when you have enough holes you can just remove the ziploc/saran.
