The tank where I work (100gal - reef/fish - lots of live rock and corals) has red algae and a bright grass green colored algae growing on some of the rock and the stalks of the yellow button polyps. The green stuff doesn't appear to be harming anything. I know the red algae is bad. What is the green stuff (it's not grass)? Is it bad? How do I get rid of it if it is bad? How do I get rid of the red algae?

Red is most likely cyano and there are too many options on the green...I need a pic of it to tell you what it is. I can tell you that your nutrient level is way too high if you have that much algae. It could be simple hair algae or bryopsis or a few others.
