You do get different strains of coralline which have different colours, can't say I have heard of a black variety.

The green is normal or though rare and different shades of pink are quite common.

The only creature I know that is black that grows on the LR is sponges.

It looks like some kind of encrusting sponge, very weird, not seen the like of it before.
