Name that algae

Hello,

I have a dark green algae growing on my rocks. It blows off fairly easily with a turkey baster. Anyone know what type of algae this is and how to get rid of it? I run a skimmer and phosphate reactor.

It shows 0 but I don't think that is accurate. There has to be some there I would think.

A better pic would help, all I see is green, if you can't get one pull a better pic off line, ( similar at least)

Weird. The pics looked pretty clear when I uploaded them. Will try again. It looks like green turf algae but its easy to blow of unlike turf.
