Those Red Things on the glass of your tank are flatworms, they are a nusance in the aquarium. They reproduce Asexually (think thats the right term) and very rapidly. Not only are they ugly to look at, in large numbers they will smother your sand, LR and corals if they go unchecked. I would suggest getting yourself some Slaifert Flatworm Exit. Just follow the directions in the box, and make sure you have plenty of water ready for a water change, and plenty of carbon.

Keep an eye on them and dont underestimate the amount that are hiding in your tank, between and under rocks, and in crevaces. Although they look totaly harmles, their bodies give of a toxic chemical when they die that can polute your tank killing your fish and corals.

I think that running carbon is a good thing in general. It will help keep your water crystal clear and get rid of that yellow tint, as well as pull any of the toxins out of the tank.
