    Hey guys i did some reading and says corraline algae is supposed to be healthy. But it states to be a light purple color. Can anyone help verify if this dark purple growing on my tank is coralline algae or not.

    I recently setup my first reef tank in over 5 years so i am a little bit out of the loop. I bought an established tank (4-5 months) from a friend who couldnt deal with the upkeep but inherited it in a fairly sustainable manner. He had several pieces of live rock all with purple coralline growth...

    I've been running my FOWLR tank since mid-February now (well, that's when I actually added livestock), and adding a coralline starter called 'Purple Up' daily since then. I'm yet to see a single speck in the tank though, aside from that on the shells of the hermits which was there when I bought...

    So here's the deal: I have had my tank up and running for about 3.5 months. The live rock was from a great LFS and some is from his personal tank that he had to break down when he closed up shop. So this live rock is just gorgeous. My issue is this - my coralline algae slowly disappeared in...

    Looking to buy up to eight pounds and a minimum of two pieces of live rock with a lot of coralline algae coverage. Would prefer a red/purple/pink species but anything is better than. Nothing. I live in the middle of Kansas so unless you are local we will have to work out shipping.

    Hey everyone, I'm currently having any algae bloom in my tank, but there is one type of algae I'm seeing that I can't seem to identify from looking at pictures online. It's neon green, and is almost completely covered one of my rocks. I was thinking maybe it was green coralline. The tank has...

    The purple Coralline was very dark purple and looked slimish in other words (as it should be). However, since sunday night the purple has been peeling off and looks as if its turning white in my 26 gallon bowfront. My paramater are on spot, 0 ammonia, 0 nitrite, and a ph of 8.2 and SG at 1.025...

    Hello, I'm new to the site, but not the hobby. I've had my tank setup for 6 years, and no real problems until 7 months ago. I was put on bed rest and my hubby refused to scrub the inside of the tank. Now I'd say about 65% of the sides is covered in THICK coralline. I have a 28 gal cube, so its...

    Can anyone please help me identify what's on my LR? I have a relatively new tank. If you click on my sig, you can see it. I seeded the tank w/ this one LR, about 5.5 lbs. I'd like to know what's growing and if there is anything bad. I can tell the green stuff is coralline but there is also a...

    when you visit a local fish store you observe live rocks encrusted with wonderful colors (mostly shades of purple/red). When i look at my live rock, i'm left puzzled as to why can't i achieve the same colors?:blob: I've noticed that the red coralline grows very commonly in majority of the tanks...
