Is it possible to have too much Coralline algae in a tank?

Letting it mostly take over the sides of the tank, except for the front.

I am keeping my dkH between 8 and 9 with All-For-Reef. (2 ml per 10 gallons per day.)

I would assume being a plant, it would consume CO2 and raise tank ph with higher O2 levels?

And consumes nutrients too.

But also absorb light that would normally be reflected off the glass.

Like moss around a potted orchid.

As always, a
