This is Pink Cotton Candy algae, which is a major pest in some aquariums. Sandra Shoupe wrote an article about this stuff if you want to read it. The huge Mexican Turbo Snails will devour it, but they can be bulldozers with your corals as well. This algae is definitely a pest in our aquariums. Not Reef-safe.
