Was it kept on the sand? Looks like algae growing on it can we have a FTS? My montipora receded a tiny bit due when fighting Dino’s

I only put it in the sand from worrying about bleaching because I am raising the light by .5% a day for the past 15 days. So far in this tank I have not delt with dinos yet.
