Live rock turning orange?

I haven't added anything to the tank besides ammonia for the cycling and some of my purple live rock is turning orange. It doesn't look like orange algea is taking over, it looks as if the rock is actually turning orange. It had coralline algea on it I think.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Coralline can be many colors. Orange is one of them.
