is this normal?

i started a sw aquarium 3 months ago. and remember asking about purple coraline on the glass, and someone told me that is goes lime green first.
ok, now my tank has some purple on the heater, pump and little bit on glass but theres is alot of green. is it normal or ok to have green all ove the glass, pump and heater? does the purple just go over top?

I believe, in a post a few days ago, it was stated that there are different species/colors. I may have originally stated that it will change colors, and may have been incorrect. I do know, if you turn off your phs and filter, you can scrape it off and it should settle and begin growing in different places. I believe it is a good sign of a great tank!
Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!
