When I put mine in sometimes the corraline would turn white but it would soon turn back to the original color. How about some Calcium, Alk ang Magnesium readings.

That`s good. You can always take it to your LFS and get him to test for those.

Coraline algae can die back and come back again quite often. An urchin will eat it and it will come back. LR really refers to the fact the the rock surfaces are colonized by beneficial bacteria. Unless you have stagnant water in an unfed tank, or take the rock out and let it dry completely, or treat with strong antibiotics that kill all the bacteria the LR won't die.

I actually purchased a bottle of Purple Up. Wether it's a gimmick or not, I cant say. It did seem to jump start my growth though.
