    Far too small to make a positive ID, it will need to grow a lot more before being able to ID it properly, if it is soft then a very broad guess would maybe be Gracilaria or Halymenia macro algae, those two seem to be the more common species found in our tanks.

    So I take it they are good? They seem to grow only om my power head. Would like to scrape them off and put them in my sump?

    Not sure if they are beneficial, but they do look pretty when they grow large.

    You can do that as long as there is light for it. I would perhaps wait for it to establish itself and grow a bit more before you move it, it is very small.
