    I've got green coralline that is out-competing the more attractive pink stuff. How can I change this?

    I dont have a pic but it is the same as pink/purple coralline.

    Calcium and magnesium levels are fine.

    I also have green coralline but it only grows in my sump, where the light from my algea scrubber is, seems to like the warm white low level sort of light
