    Looks like algae called bryopsis sp. Will grow like crazy if your nitrates and phosphates are high. What are you parameters? How old is your tank, what lighting do you have and how often do you do water changes?

    Nitrates are at 0.2. Dont have a test kit for phosphates, will get one tomorrow. Tank is about 2 months old and i do 20 percent water changes every week.

    Try and get rid of it as soon as possible...remove LR and scrub off, if you can as you don't want it growing all over you'r LR..then reduce you'r Nitrates and Phosphates and starve the bugger so they can't grow again...
