Is this good or bad!

also any ideas as to what kinda of algae it is(the brown stuff)?
All I know is its growing VERY slowly but its growing over my coralline and that kinda bothers me.

Is the algae soft? Does it come off in a smooth sheet or just sort of disopate when disturbed? Or does it just stay on the rock?

I used to have that and it pissed me off to now end. It gows in rond circles and covers things up with nasty brown sheet. It looks like a lichen. I had to pull it out in sheets, and then it started to go away when I was very vigilant about removing it and skimmed the water very well.

I would have to say it comes off in pieces. it doesn't "crumble"
Hey mad man, how did you go about removing it?

Thx
