    They only grow in areas with lower flow, that's why you'll only see them in those areas.

    They are a sponge....sponges have to feed to grow and reproduce....

    They are completely benign unless they suddenly burst out into plague numbers...which can happen....

    Generally they aren't any concern at all....
