reddish coating on the glass

There has been a remarkable reddish coating on the inside of the glas in one of my aquariums. Coming soon again when I removed it. What is it and what causes it and how to remove it? Se attached file.

Try to use RODI water if you aren't already. High nitrates and phosphates will cause growth. Reduce them and the cyano won't be able to feed.
