A friend is dealing with this green algae that is on the sand bed. Any help would be appreciated. Here is a pic of the sand and also a pic from the microscope.

They haven't been reported to be a long term nuisance in the aquarium. (Though I'm open to new info)
I expect that this is a short-lived phase in a maturing tank.
