If it is cyano...it is a new one on me. This is fuzzy, and I don't mean stringy, like it is holding air bubbles or is imply stringing out, it is fuzzy. it looks like the fuz you might see on a wine stained teddy bear

Reeflady,
It does look very much like that, the only difference is that it would be more an exact purple, like a seeded grape or the color purple (true purple)in a box of crayons

I don't know...I'd have to ask the tooth brsh I scrubbed it off with. I wasn't letting it stay, it was growing in the middle of some GSP.

here is a picture of the stuff....also, the tiny pink specs, they are popping up all over, but they are not flat, they are little mounds.

Pink looks like coraline. Purple looks like an encrusting sponge.

The top picture looks like forminiferans - they are small one-celled animals that feed on extremely small particulate matter (protozoans, etc.). Pretty & harmless. Here's a close up shot of some red ones: Foraminiferan (Homotrema rubrum) ~ John Rice's web page

The second picture definitely looks like an encrusting sponge. Cool color!
