It kinda looks like alge. It will grow all over. I have rocks that are totally purple.

If it`s hard then it`s coralline algea which is a good thing. If it`s soft and comes off easily then it`s cyanobacteria which is not a good thing.

Melosu58- I just had my girlfriend check she said it was hard.

Agentskeller- everyone says to just be cautious. Hopefully they won't be a problem.
