Candy Cane Coral

Hey guys. I bought some candy cane coral and placed it in my sand. It came with Brown stems. After 5 days the tip of them stem seems to have strivaled a little bit and turn blood red and the rest of them stem turned pink. The heads still look nice and remain the same. What is wrong with it? Help.

That's coraline algae and cyano.

Is coraline, cyanobacteria, or red slim harmful? Or is it just cosmetic?

Coraline is good. Cyano is not though. Signs of excess nutrients or low flow
