If you don't have corals that really need it maybe try to limit your calcium input. I don't really have any other helpful advice though.

I wonder how some can't buy their way to good coralline growth, while others would pay to get rid of it. I would think there must be a "silver bullet" to this stuff.

In my case, it appears the coralline is migrating from the Fiji LR onto the Florida base rock. It looks more of a tannish color to me, not the deep purple we all strive for. Better than nuttn'.
