Looking for an algae guide..

Now that my tank has been set up a couple weeks, I'm now getting some algae growth. Some is pink, some green, some maroon. Is there somewhere I can go to get pics, identify what I have, and find out how to treat them?

This sounds like coralline. If its hard and flat im sure it is. Do a google search on coralline then look at images. You dont want to get rid or will never be able to remove it all. I can say you will need a razor blade to remove from the areas of glass that you view from.This might help.GL..

I use this site:
It has pics and can get you in the general direction.
Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!
