Bubble algae and aipastia would be what I would look for as for bad rock. Even green algae can be cleaned up with some effort.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

i would use the hyposalinity treatment with a good scrub to brush off anything that's suspicious.
