that appears to be a leather coral. i would not feed it anything. they are photosynthetic and require adequate lighting, but nothing more. judging by that rock it's on, you have plenty of nutrients in the water. i would focus on keeping the water as pristine as i could, cutting back on feeding, water changes..etc.

cyanobacteria? it's from excess nutrients, as is the green algae. try feeding every other day for a while. twice a week isn't too little.
