    Normally a nutrient issue, nitrates/phosphates

    That looks quite wavy, possibly just normal GHA (Green Hair Algae), is it like grass, very thin individual single strands?

    If it's just on the one rock then I would remove that rock and treat it separately, but would ideally need to know Nitrate and Phosphate levels if possible.
