Default Irish Moss?

Brewed last nite and forgot to add Irish Mosss, can a flocculant be added later or does it not matter. The wort is pretty clear to start. Any recomendations?

Too late now, just keep trucking and remember next time. All it does is help settle out the hot break in the kettle so it can be left behind when transferring to primary. If dumping everything into primary, the purpose of the moss is being defeated.

Ive heard of adding Knox gelatin to the secondary to clear it out. Ive never done it myself But im sure others who have will chime in.
