Algae ID

Does anyone know what type of algae is growing on my fake plant? I want macro algae, but not if it’s harmful. I can’t find a good match when searching so far. Thanks!

Is this fresh or saltwater? That looks like a freshwater algae.

Itís saltwater. The algae is kind of hard to the touch, but not brittle.

I'm not familiar with any algae that looks like that that is hard to the touch.
Look this over and see if you can find it maybe.

That's a good idea. There is a lot of stuff that can be invasive to our closed systems, especially with macro algaes. Things like grape caulerpa can easily take over tanks.
