I have read that if you scrape it off of where it is growing it should help seed it around your tank

My tank has been set up since 2011 and it doesn't really grow coraline...I have some but not very much. You can try brushing at it with a toothbrush to spread it around, but make sure you turn off skimmers and filtration or it won't go anywhere but out. Products like PurpleUp and others are just calcium in a bottle...if you want more calcium or alkalinity, just get a salt mix with more in it. You can save money that way and not risk throwing parameters out of whack.
