    Is this cyano? At first I thought it was but it's not slimy or hairy. It's pretty hard to scrap off my live rock. Also it's more of a maroon color than red.

    My tank is currently cycling and a bunch of red slime algae has started coming up. Does anyone have any ideas on how to get it to go away and prevent it coming back in the future?.
