What is this red stuff and white stuff

What is this red stuff covering everything in my tank and how can I control it? Also there is thick white stuff on one of the rocks.

The redstuff could be cyanobactor. This is a form of highly undesirable algae that will blanket every surface in the tank. To remove it you can take a syphon hose and suck it out of the tank. It shoudl com off very easily.

Is your tank new? Do you know what your water readings are? What kind of water are you using to make saltwater with?
