I don't know that it will hurt anything, as long as it doesn't get out of hand. And I agree, since its green it kinda looks nice! I would clean it off the plants though.

I was thinking the same...there are two Crypt leaves, the one in the pic and one on a plant to the left, that is just touching the stones and they are the only parts that have the green algae(?).

Ah no. I had emptied my sink and filled it with boiling hot water and a capful of bleach...and let them sit for a few hours, then did it again a couple of days later, then rinsed them in the hottest water my faucet could produce...then let them sit in the sun for 2 days...
