Algea question

What kind of algea is pinkish with lots of bubbles on it? It is on top of the sand towards the rear.

Could be cyanobacteria, does it look kinda slimy? You can siphon out what you can, direct more flow towards the affected area. I haven't had much luck with anything eating cyano, if the tank has just finished cycling recently then this could just be a passing algae bloom. Try the flow thing and try to keep nitrates and phosphates to a minimum. HTH
