They grow very slowly, so they won't absorb a huge amount of ammonia, but they help keep other algae down by out-competing it, and they do provide a large surface area for beneficial bacteria.

So overall they do good things in the tank.

They won't do anything much. Some types of algae (including moss balls) are too tough for fish to eat.
