green algee over-taking coraline

I have a 50gal tank. Been set up now for about 1 1/2 months. I have added a few pieces of live rock. I am adding Coral-Vital. My Coraline seems to be going away and getiing replaced by green algee, but I hae coraline growing in new places. Would a phosphate remover help??

no. phosphate removers are not solutions theyre quick fixes to a problem such as adding phosphates when doing water changes.
dosing calcium is a must for coralline to thrive.

How recently did you add the new rock? Could the tank be going through a cycle? I know the two tanks I have cycled had a die off of coraline initially and an algae bloom near the end of the cycle, then the algae problem went away and the coraline is taking off

What are your water parameters and lighting like?
