    I've never experienced that but from what I've read, going white is a sign of it dying off. Is the algae just on that one rock? Your other rocks look fine.

    pull the rock out and spray some hydrogen peroxide on the algae. It will kill the algae and has no harm to tank as it will ionize when it makes contact with water.
