Algae ID

Can anyone determine what type of algae this is growing on my return nozzles?

I put some in the tank to see if my naso or idol would eat it and they go crazy for the stuff.

Looks just like it but mine is very green flies under the blue lights. Not sure how it popped up just recently though. I havenít added anything in many months, though I do get snails and dry rock from the beach

If the only change is the snails and rock coming from the beach then I think you've found your source.

Don't underestimate the ability of life to find its way into places you didn't think possible, like via dry rock or the back of a snail shell.
