somethings gwowing!

i looked in my tank the other day and saw some neon green spots on some of the peices of rocks. it is almost the same color of anti freeze. does anyone know what this might be? it it good or bad? if bad, how do i get rid of it? sorry i don't have any pics. at first i thought it might be algee, but i've never seen algee that bright of a color before.

Is it very short and very light green, like fluorecent?

Take care.

Sounds like the dreaded ( ) coraline starting. Seriously, I have lots of bright green coraline growing in my tank. It comes in all colors. If it's not fuzzy or slimy looking, there's a good chance that's what it is. Pic would be great.

The young sprouts of the Halimeda species of calcareous algae sometimes have the same color as you describe.
