      yeah I know about the bubble algae..I had alot more!!(not on that rock though..broke the all off another rock that was really covered!)..so if its a GSP, does the middle section there look dead to you guys?..something in my tank keeps knocking over a piece of coral (that has some type of life form on it) so I pick it up and and grabbed some of that gsp and like the middle section can lift up but the sides are pretty much stuck..

      Looks like almost dead GSP. With all that algae I would check your nitrate, and phosphate levels .

      what should I do about this gsp?..should I get rid of the rock?..peel the piece off that's easy or leave it be?

      Absolutely some Green Star Polyps (GSP) coral. Looks mostly dead, but could potentially come back given adequate light, flow, and water-parameters.

      kinda funny how these are called gsp when the color is clearly pink?..as far as the algae..that rock has the most of it..the green bubble came with the tank..there were still a few left from the transfer..but if these GSP's look like they still have a chance then I'll give it to them..thanks guys!!

      I would say Green Star Polyp as well. the white parts look dead, the pink parts look on there way but the purple sections look recoverable.
      when it gets healthy again green polyps well come out of the little balls.

      +1 give them good lighting and flow
