If it has algae growing on it there is not enough flow, try moving it closer to a powerhead.

Is the algae brown or red? If it's brown probably just diatoms, they will go away on it's own.

I had this happen when I first put my green finger leather in my tank after a slight water flow adjustment the algae slowly went away but it still took some time
