It's fine. It's just dead coralline algae. coralline algae will come and go over the course of the life of the tank.

@Fatdaddy: I have the same thing on all of my old rock that came with my tank and sat dry for a while. I was wondering what it was so I am glad you asked the question!

@Mr X: Will things grow back over the top of it? I added a lot of new live rock and live sand.
