As mentioned a few posts ago. There are multiple varieties that require different light levels. I have Coraline algae growing on the bottom of rocks and on power heads that get very little light. I have dove in caves with the stuff coating the walls. So there are different kinds.

If it looks like lice and is moving then its pods which your fish will eat or they will go back to the live rock.

If they are worms, which I don't know anything about then its something different maybe.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

IMO you dont want to get rid of them. They will eventually become fish food. In the meantime they are great filter feeders and will help to clean the tank.

I have a bunch of those types of things on my glass from time to time. I was pretty sure they weren't copepods (they weren't moving) but when I noticed one of my fish snacking on them I figured they couldn't be bad. I don't worry about anything in my reef unless I notice a major change. I wouldn't consider that a major change.
