Coraline algae growth is on a ramp that takes a while to get going and then is like a weed once it has started.

Can you ship me some by the postal service ^.^...

I bleached all my rocks, So I have no more coraline remaining... The only seed I have is what's left on the powerheads... My rocks are more covered by a kind of dark brown substance... (Don't think it's algae...)

If you have coralline on your power heads, that's enough.

Patience is a virtue nothing in this hobby that is good happens over night only bad things might be a little cyano or an algae the tank is clearly going through a change. Weekly water changes and then bi weekly should set your straight but it may take 2 months. For example my radions murdered half my sps (30 colonies) and it has taken 3 months to get about half of where I was at.

Mr x is on the money as usual if your power heads have purple that will be enough to start the process again.
