    I've got lots of green coraline algae, but little pink/purple. (Circular growths on back of tank glass.) I was not cleaning the back and thought some nice pink and purple coraline back there would look ok, but it's covered in the green ones. Only one little pink one in site. How do I encourage the pink/purple/maroon colors and discourage the green?
