    Please can some tell me what the thing is with the blue tips. It's growing and starting on a second spot.

    Looks a bit like Blue Dictyota, google that and see if it's similar.

    Possibly some sort of tunicate. Maybe it's just me but the pic is not too clear.

    @viper357 it's exactly that. I see its a type of algae. Should I remove it now before it's too late and becomes a nuisance ? It actually looks nice

    It does look nice, I had some growing in one of my tanks a few years ago, it seemed to wither away after a while so not too sure if it gets out of hand or not.
