Bad! I don't think they serve any purpose other than maybe a food source for herbivores.

Hard to tell from the pic but doesn't look like any macro I'm familiar with. Probably bad.

I've been told it's Coraline, it's supposed to be good according to a friend.

Looks like cyno to me which is not good siphon it out like it was suggested above or it will get all over the place. Usually caused by high nitrates and phosphates. What are your parameters. Watch overfeeding, water changes, clean filter pad do you have a skimmer.
