Another algae question

I have little green specs of algae that look like abtasia. Can anyone name it? Tried taking a picture but its too small to see on pic. Any hints or lead greatly appreciated

Thanks for your time

What is abtasia? I'm afraid I have never heard of it...

If you are referring to the fact that they look like aiptasia, my guess would be hydra and not algae.
