Tell me the type of lighting u have. Also, you may need some algae eaters for that.

Well that type of lighting promotes red algae groeth. Also, if you keep the light on for a while, that can also be the case. I suggest for you to get an algae pack of snails, sea stars & hermit crabs or get a couple of tangs in your tank and that will do the trick.
