Coralline algae (a good thing) can come in lime green when it first starts appearing. Assuming it's not hairy and is just a hard blob of color, my guess is coralline.

I agree with Kurt. Most of my coraline comes in green at first and then goes purple or redish.

Sounds like coraline to me also. The start of it anyway.
