Still not sure what exactly it is, please take a look over here:

Iodine does usually increase the growth of the kind of algae from the above link.

Are the algae just located on some smaller spots or do they spread over the whole tank ?

Because of the corals TN please open a new thread in the General English form with some more details about your system:

Can not tell you what exactly it is but if it starts to spread I would recommend to remove it manually from time to time with a brush.
