Can someone please help? I have these green plants growing on my LR. Is it bad? The tank is a month old and has cycled. Any help is appreciated!!

I would try and remove it. Pull out as much as you can with your fingers, and add a few turbo snails to help with the rest. (fingers crossed)
You might need something like an urchin though, if the turbo snails don't work out. GL.

Just make sure to pull out as much as you can first. You want to prune it all the way down to the rocks if you can. GL.

I also think some kind of turf algae but I also think I see some bubble algae (green balls). Get rid of it. It spreads like crazy and the only thing I know of that will eat it is emerald crabs. Also beware of urchins... they do a pretty good job but they will also eat/scrape the coralline algae right off the rock.
