Red leaf ID

So I would like to know if anyone could ID this red leaf thing. They are about 1/8th" to 3/8th" in size and are slow growing. The leaf thing waves is the current and it very thin. It is starting to grow over a rock but not on or to close to any coral. I would appreciate any ID help. O yea and ammonia is 0 and nitrates and nitrites are also 0.

So if it is Rhodophyte red macro algae is that good, bad or what? Also is there a fish, snail or crab that I should look for that will eat it that is reef safe and can be housed in a 75gallon tank?

So anyone know if this stuff is bad? The last few days I can see a lot more growing. I think I need something to eat it but have no idea what will.
