Rather than being cyano bacteria, it acts like it is painted on the rock and won't budge when hit with a powerhead or turkey baster. The more common type is pink coralline, but some red mixed in can look quite nice. This leaves the question open as to whether red and purple sea urchins promote or hinder coralline algae abundance. In the Pacific Northwest, the percent cover of coralline algae inside beds of red sea urchins was half that of the percent cover of coralline algae under bull kelp forests with low sea urchin densities (Rogers-Bennett et al., ).   The red color comes from Phycoerythrin, an accessory pigment to the chlorophyll that Coralline Algae use to harvest light. Coralline Algae are from the intertidal zone of shorelines where they receive alternating immersion and full air exposure to waters as deep as meters; the maximum light penetration zone.

  Red Coralline Algae. This is the most common color of coralline algae that can grow in your tank. The shade of red may differ from a faded pink to a more vibrant pinkish-red. Ultimately, its final appearance and the intensity of its hue all depend on the type of live rock or other means you use to introduce these algae into your tank.   Coralline or red algae?

Like other algae, coralline algae need increased levels of calcium to survive and thrive. Unlike brown, green hair and red slime algae (cyanobacteria), which frequently grow in your tank whether you like it or not, Coralline Algae must be physically brought into your tank in order for it to reproduce and populate the various surfaces. About red coralline algae Since these algae deposit calcium carbonate (limestone) in most of their cell walls, red corallines have the appearance and rough texture of coral. Grazing on these calcified algae would be like eating marble, so most hungry herbivores feed elsewhere. Red algae supplements may produce positive effects in people with hypertension. A Korean study, published in the edition of the journal “Algae,” observed the inhibitory effects of red algae extracts on an enzyme linked to high blood pressure. The angiotensin-1 converting enzyme, or ACE, plays a significant role in controlling blood.
