Coraline Algae

ALGAE! and its eating my calcium! Reminds me of the time I thought I had a beautiful sea anemone and was painstakingly feeding it. You can guess what it turned out to be. AIPTASIA
I think I might have a little hard coral that kind of looks leathery on some of my rocks.
Just got done cleaning the canister filter. I've been rotating two of the filter pads. I clean one and then put it back when I do the next filter change. Anyone else do that?

Only a few macro algae eat calcium as far as i know, for example shaving brush and halmidia are a few. What kind of algae do you have ?

I think it is Coraline algae the stuff that flat and hard comes in different colors and grows on rocks and on the glass.
