Strange Red Vine growing in GSP

My Green Star Polyps are closed today for the first time since I got them about a month ago. There appears to be a strange red viny plant growing within them. I tried to see if it was easy to remove but is intertwined in the polyps and not easy to remove. Are these things bad or just another life form that I should leave alone. This is the best picture I could get of it. Thanks

I can't ID it from the pic. But it is probably an algae. If it is interfering with the polyps, remove it as gently as possible
