Purple, red, pink, yes. It's the hard encrusting algae that grows on your rocks, and eventually everything else in your tank, if you have the right conditions. 8)

if all your rock is base rock, you'll need to "Seed" it to get it to grow. You should buy 1lb of "real" live rock and scrape a bit of the purple off into the tank. that will help.
