Frogspawn isn't going to be bothered much by algae. But you should still remove the algar as it spreads very quickly.

The black tube is a vermetid snail. Its a harmless ish filter feeder. They only problem is they can irritate stony coras if they are nearby

The white swirls are spiorbid worms. A completely harmless filter feeder.

So I shouldn't bother moving out anything but the algae?
