"Red turf" is like saying "hair algae". These are very broad terms covering a lot of different variations.

Ok cool now that I have a good idea of what is...finding something to get rid of it...is my next problem! I seen online Halloween crabs eat it, as well as Cyano bacteria. Any suggestion?

I doubt a crab will eat cyano. I would try a turbo snail before that (for the turf algae....not cyano).
