It actually looks like Coraline algae growing on your glass below the sand bed surface.You can move the sand away from the glass at one spot to double check.I have always had it in my tanks and IMO it shows your tank is maturing.To me it is a good thing.

Moved the sand. The red stuff went with it. I hope it's not bad.

I agree Sith ricksreef. The sand usually changes color which shoes maturation. U should be fine

Yeah I hate that. My sand was bright white when I setup my tank and now its varying colors in different areas.

As long as it's not harmful, I like the look of it

While line loc looks nice, you can do the same thing with a PVC Tee and a couple of 45s. Just don't glue the 45s and then you can adjust them to your liking.
