Hey...I just had some redish purplish slime in my tank. It was cyano and i removed it right away. I'm not sure if thats what you got but it was what i had...Coraline is crusty purple algae and it is good. Hope this helped you...

There are many different types of coralline you can see >>here<<. Colors range from pruple, pink, green, red, orange and black. It has a very basic structure and grows much like any scleractinia coral incorporating CaCO3 into it's make up.

Cyano on the otherhand is a very ancient growth that has the traits of algae and bacteria but not really defined as either. You can check that out in these articles. Cyano I, Cyano II.

Cheers
Steve
