Hi guys,
I'm noticing some excessive growthof green algae on my life rock, it's not just a color, it has a thickness like a carpet as shown in the photo below

do I have to remove it or that algae is considered a good thing? if I have to remove it, is that done chemically using some medicine or using a fish or something that can feed on it? or physically by scrapping?
Please advise
Best regards
