If good coralline algae is growing on my live rocks and I see the same purpleish algae growing on the glass, is it the same benifical algae or should I keep cleaning it?

It sounds like coralline and it's purely an ascetic choice. If it's on the rear of the tank and not blocking your view I prefer to leave it.
