algae id

I'm referring to the dark green fern looking algae attached to the rock. It's growing all from the same point -- looks weird.

I took a video too.

It's hard to tell but I'd guess at green spot algae. I don't even bother with it. If its on the glass ill scrap it off. Otherwise it's not something worth fighting.
