Red face Purple Spots !!!

Hi, well I have 10 gal. SW aquarium with 2 baby perculas. I just got them around 1 month ago, and the tank was cycling for 1 week. I put VERY little live rock in there (just 1 pound) and its treated. But there seems to be purple spots on my fake plants, the rock and the sand.. Anthing wrong? And I have done no water changes in that period of time because the fish need to get used to the water..

Can you get a pic? I would test your water and change water as needed if the tank is being cycled with fish. It sounds like coraline to me.

probably coraline if the rock is cured nicely in your LFS/where u got it.
+1 for thominil, I only do water change when my nitrate hit 10+, so do water test and save some water XP

Sounds like coralline to me. On a side note I would get use to doing frequent PWC`s in a 10 gallon tank. In a tank that small there is no margin for error. Small water volumes like that are not very forgiving when problems arise. I would at least do a weekly PWC to keep water parameters in check. JMO
