Anyone else ever had a problem with red algae on Zoa plugs and racks but not anywhere else in the tank?

Is it coralline or lobophora?

It's not hard so don't think it's coraline

Probably lobophora if it's slippery.

It grows on the plugs and rocks as that's where the nutrients (phosphates) saturate and build up.
