It could, even a small amount will indeed spread over time.

My coralline usually starts out in little white semi circles that are white, then shades of green and finally go to purple.

As long as you have good water with the proper levels of calcium, magnesium and the alkalinity is ok it will spread. Mine is plated onto everything in my tank after about a year or so. I only started out with about 30lbs of live rock and a very small amount of coralline.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Have to agree with Carey on this one. I'm just starting to get it in my tank, and it does start in little white disk shapes which then starts to turn purple.
