It looks like a complex algae of some sort, there's a chance that a traditional dip won't kill it all off.

Was it because it was too slippery or because it was too hard? What was the texture like?

You think scraping it was adequate? I'd rather ditch it then have problems.

If it comes back tweeze it again and keep the frag away from others just in case .

I find xacto knife works great for all types of manual removal. Sometimes tweezers or other objects aren't as effective as scraping away with a sharp razor edge. should be fine just keep an eye on it for returning growth
 

Do you reef more, less or the same on the weekends?
