any clue what this is?

This thing has been growing on my live rock for a few months now. It started out smaller than pea size and has grown to the size of a marble. It's a dark green to almost black in color.

Welcome to AquariumAdvice.com

Valonia aka bubble algae. It's a nuisance algae that can spread throughout the tank. If you can remove it without breaking the bubble, you should.

Cheers
Steve
