Algae Identification

Are these two algae blossoms bad?

Should I remove them from the sponge they are on? My tang likes to pick at it so I don't mess with it but just want some more opinions.Click image for larger version

Hair algae. It can be removed as it can easily spread and it obviously clogging the filter sponge.
