Cycling help

I'm finishing up on week 6 and live rock has been turning green. Is this good or bad green? Click image for larger version

Appears to be coraline algae to me which is a good thing . Easiest way to tell for sure is see if it is really hard to remove . If it is then its coraline .

I would have thought it was way to early to see coralline spread so quickly. Not to worry though, I have seen many types of algea blooms in my tanks when setting up/cycling into the first few months.
