Is this Coralline?

Hey everyone!
New to the forum had some questions and it kept popping up with good info so I joined hoping you guys will help me and advance my skills. I am a beginner just got the tank 2 months ago. In it I have the following:

2 clownfish
1 purple dottyback
and an anemone (small)
xenia (small 2 branch)
corals
(I'll have to get back to you guys about my lighting)

I have a question, I've done some google research but I'd like to see what you guys have to say. My tank has three corals on each coral different colors are forming on certain parts, really red, bright purple, and pink.. anyone has any advice if its good or bad? I haven't read that its bad, actually I've read the red might be coralline. The pink might be a lichen of some kind and purple is circulation (which questions me if I'm having circulation problems?) if anyone has any opinion let me know and if you guys want pictures I don't mind posting them.
thanks so much!
-Marina

there are much too many fish for an 8gallon, and if you have the stock lighting it isnt strong enough to support an anemone.

if the tank is only 2 months old then that is also not good for the nem either.

clowns dont need anemones nor the opposite, you could get a frogspawn or a torch coral with that setup and they'd probably host it just the same (if they're hosting now) and i'd suggest one clown and maybe a small goby if that.

pictures would be much more helpful if you could get them working
