    Red bubble algae, syphon out without popping preferably, if they pop they release spores and start sprouting everywhere.
    they are considered a nuisance but not nearly as bad as the small green ball bubble algae.

    As i said, it looks more like red bubble algae to me.
    If you say it's flat then it could be fauchea laciniata but you would have to watch it develop further..
