Fuzzy Brown Algae

I have noticed some Brown Fuzzy Balls of Algae growing on my Live Rock. I could not take a Picture but found a picture onling of exactly what it looks like. The are like little brown fuzzy balls almost like one you would buy at a craft store. Does anyone know what it is, and if I should be concerned.

You can post pics in your photo album, then paste the BB code into your message. Or you can click on the Manage Attachments button in the "Additional Options" box when you're in advanced posting mode, and attach photos directly from your computer.

I noticed the balls of algae actually has air inside giving its shape. It doesn't look like the regular bubble algae as it is hairy.
