What is the stubborn, dark green algae on my rock?

Please ignore the dying BBA 🙂 https://imgur.com/a/S2lDZWp

What is the green algae on my rock? My guess is green spot algae because of how stubborn I've seen that stuff stick to my lily pipes in the past.

It's not BGA because hydrogen peroxide doesnt do anything to it.

Unrelated, but on the plus side, it's all slowly going away now that I have my tank in balance. The hydrogen peroxide dosage two days in a row to killed the BBA. It also a number ony some of my plants and killed three of my amanos. Check out the stringy plants in the back and notice their tops are big. That's from the dosing but the new growth is OK. My java moss got torn up the most. Any of them that had bba and I had to directly dose are brownish yellow now.

There's also some holes in my plants on the left from when I was trying to balance the tank correctly and failing.
