Coraline Algae has to be introduced for it to grow. Do you already have it in there?

Do you have any friends with sw tanks that you could scrape some coraline algae off the glass or even some rock.

Rock rubble is small pieces of rock that sometimes have coraline algae on it.

Your tanks looks good give it awhile and it will even look better.

I have actually found snails with coraline algae growing on them you only need a little bit for it to take off.
