    Can anyone Id this Algae?

    I have this algae growing in my tank (thanks to a $10 zoo frag) and as you can see it is spreading. The main rock it is on is siliconed into the tank so taking it out to do something is out. I would like to find an ID and hopefully something that may like to munch on it. It is in my 40g with the Multicolor angel and a small 6line.

    I will post a better pic tonight. I should have zoomed and croped the image instead of just downsizing it. Unfortunately I can remove the rock it is siliconed in place.

    It is definately not the normal halmedia. The leaves are fairly soft and each one grows from the rock like a little plate.
