Fire coral getting covered in algae!?

I've had this fire coral for close to a month and it's getting covered in algae, there is a little green fuzzy nussiance algae but most of it is coraline algae, I'm assuming this will kill my coral but I don't know what is going on?

The fuzzy (?) algae can be removed by gentley crubbing with a soft bristled toothbrush. The coralline is a different story. It should not grow on coral flesh, just dead skelatal structures 8O

That's what I was afraid of The coral looks ok, normal coloration etc... guess I'll have to take a few pics tomorrow but he's probably doomed
