good algae...bad algae

I kind of asked this question in another thread before but didn't get much response so I thought I would try again. I have a zoanthid frag that has started to grow some sort of algae on it. Looks like fine hair or thread. It's sitting on some rocks and now the algae has migrated to the rocks. Anyone know what this is and should I be concerned about getting rid of it ???

In my experience most types of algae have the potential to overrun frags if not dealt with. Looks like it isnt thick enough to bother it right now, but keep an eye on it. Tweezers do a good job of pulling chunks of it off. Zoanthids also tolerate hydrogen peroxide dips pretty well if it gets out of control.
