would it be a bad idea to test water currents with food coloring?

I wouldn't do it either. Buy some Rods Food, that will work.

I wouldn't add purple up either. There is better things to spend your money on, in my opinion of course.

I have two urchins in my 55 and the coraline does fine.. Once your tank gets a little older, you should see a huge difference. I'm just not a fan of adding things I don't need, but that is only my personal preference.
As for the water flow, use thawed frozen food, it will sink and swirl around with the water flow.
What makes you think you are having issues, or are you just curious?
