Is there any reason you want it to grow? It's not pretty and can be a nuisance. I don't know about the pink bulbs.

Good luck! Kat

Put your tank in the sunlight and you'll have green water in a couple days. Never heard of anyone that actually wanted that to happen tho'

I got really excited when I saw my first algae too. It will come on its own. After my initial bloom I had another outbreak on my sand once I started adding fish and I fed more.

If anything, you want the pink coraline algae.
