Looks like Cyano to me. Does it blow of easily with a baster? If it does blow it all of the rocks and siphon it out while doing a water change. Check your parameters to make sure your nutrient level aren’t to high to feed the Cyano.

I've always used Chemiclean to kill it. Never had any adverse reactions with using it(can't say the same about Vibrant).

This looks to me like hair algae and coraline algae. Coraline algae is beneficial to your tank!
