White Fuzz Algae Not Leaving...

I recently purchased 55 pounds of Real Reef rock. I started dosing Microbacter 7 and all of a sudden I have this white fuzz algae ALL OVER. Not sure if it a fungus, bacteria or what! It's not on the corals or anything or bothering anything. Just all over the rocks. It comes off very easy with a toothbrush. I have a skimmer rated for 100 gallons and I only have a 55 gallon tank. Any advice to get rid of it?

I think we covered this before, but I would stop dosing and run activated carbon. Some manual removal will be necessary but that should stop the bacterial outbreak we have discussed.
