What level of lighting does one need for coraline algae? I have pretty low lights. 2x30w NOF, one actinic and one white.

Not much. I had it growing in my fuge(100 gallon) with only a 65W plant light. I now have 500w over fuge and the stray light is causing it to grow in my skimmer.

Hmm so you think mine is OK? I know it is growing to some degree because it's slowly growing over new rock and dead corals (deliberately purchased for their look), etc but want to accelerate the growth.

The coralline growth should cover your rocks over time as long as your water parameters all check out alright. You can try the purple up product, but as everyone always says on this board, make sure you test for whatever you add to your tank. I have had good success with purple up.
