sounds like possibly hair algae, which can also be part of the cycling process or the sign that there are high levels of nitrates in the water. Doing a test is pointless as the nitrates will read zero since the algae is consuming all of them. Do some water changes and scrub the rock with an old tooth brush and siphon out the algae. Also post some pics, that will help in an ID

looks like Green Hair Algae (GHA) forming....if you are still in the early stages of your tank it should go away with regular water changes and a decent clean up crew.
