    Its been a while since I've posted here, finally got another tank up and running.
    I picked up a rock with button polyps now its growing some plant algae out of it
    .
    anyone have any idea what it is and should I get rid of the rock?

    It's almost impossible to get Caulerpa sp. out of a rock without continually pulling it. The holdfasts will remain in the rock and it will come back. I would frag the zoas off that rock and then toss the rock.
