    Hi guys i was wondering if you can id this algae. It looks like valvet and is very thin and loos from the rock, I can see the pods mooving under it.
    Is it good or bad but it looks verry nice.

    Yeah, looks like cyano bacteria. Check your flow, feeding, filtration, nitrates and phosphates ;)
    Also read up on it for causes and cures :)
