I'm not sure what green thing you are asking about. If it's the green bubble on top, that looks like bubble algae (valonia). Below it, that green stuff I can't see well enough to venture a guess. Sorry.

It can be. Just have to be careful not to pop them. If you want to remove them, be very careful. Try gently twisting them til they break free. Popping them will cause it to release spores into your water and help it to spread. Emerald crabs are said to eat this stuff.

Don't be too quick with that Emerald...is there a lot of this algae around to eat? One valonia bubble isn't going to keep him sustained for long.
