Question Coraline?

Alright so my tanks been up and running for about 5 weeks now and the live rock I put in had lots of purple coraline on it maybe 10lbs of 50lbs were covered. Now I'm noticing bright lime green all over my other rocks and doing some reading sources say this is how coraline starts or there's a lime green coraline. Any insight on the matter will be greatly appreciated.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Nope, just keep your tank within proper parameters and it will grow. I already have purple in my new 90g after only 5 or 6 weeks.
