redish substance covering LR and starting to get on the subs

I am cycling a 77 gal tank now that is about half way through a cycle. (Ammonia is down and nitrites are up.) Ever since my LR has gone through the die-off process, its seems to be covered in this reddish substance, has the look and colour of cayenne pepper. Is this cyano? How can I get rid of it? The only livestock I have in the tank is 6 zebra hermits. Thanks
