Could be light spectrum, low water flow in that area and excess nutrients. I am getting spots on my LR in my 125 now that grow that green slime instead of red slime. It is easy to gt off the rocks and just syphon it out. In my case I would say its nutrients because I just put new bulbs in a few months back and the water flow is good in those areas... How often do you do water changes?
