well, the thing is, the algae isn't 'long' or hairy, in fact, its pretty much flush against the rock. Almost like green coralline, but I'm almost positive it isn't coralline. If I get it quickly on the glass, it comes off VERY easily, and turns into "dust" as it gets wisked away in the water column. But on the back, where I don't scrub as often, it's almost impossible to get off, I have to use one of those aquarium scrubbers with a handle, and use a lot of elbow grease to put a dent in it. I haven't tried scrubbing the rocks, but I have a feeling it will be the same.
My blenny and tang don't touch the green stuff on the rocks, and even the snails which move right over it don't remove any of it
