Algae forming or just coraline?

I have rocks in my tank that are forming beautiful coraline algae, and others tht are a shade of green and brown, is this "bad" algae forming?

How fast is the algae growing. Coraline algae grows slow.

How long do you normally leave your lights on? And is the aquarium near a window?

Most people recommend only 8 hours of lighting... That could be causing the algae to grow I guess....
