Red coralline algae? (pic)

Is there a red coralline algae? I've got the pink that I always read about but I'd like to be sure that the red stuff is good too. It seems to be spreading more than the pink variety.

In the pic below, you can see some pink and a lot of red.

I would say if its caked on/hard then it is coraline. As long as it doesnt seem slimey and rub off easily your in good shape.

Looks like coraline to me i would suggest to maybe clean the strainer part of the powerhead off just for better circulation JMO. HTH

I agree, definitely coraline, and that strainer needs a cleanin'

WONDERFUL!

I once had orange and red but my overflow got clogged with nori and it all died off.

Hope to grow more again someday (without all the extra green)
