Live Rock - Green Plants and Growth

Hello, can anyone please tell me if the growth on this new live rock is good or bad?

I've run a FO tank with base rock for years and I've recently setup a new 75G in wall tank with Live Rock and hope to add some corals over time. Live Rock and Corals are fairly new to me so I apologize in advance if this comes across as a silly question.

Thanks so much.

It just looks like a kind of Macro Algae Jimmy.
Check this site: Xtalreef
To see if you can find it. Scroll down to Macro Algaes.
Any chance you can get a closer picture?

Thanks for the link Mitchell! Lot's of great information on that site however I was unable to find anything to answer this question. I've reposted a new photo zoomed in a little more. You'll see there is some green growth and also some white stick like things that I'm unsure of either.

Thanks in advance for anyone who can help.

try here Nuisance Algae Guide - Nano-Reef.com Forums

you have a better look at it than me but it looks like diatoms , the start of cyano. All expected if your tank is fairly new (3-6 months)
