    So i posted these pics in my main thread of my tank, but i decided to also post it here to try to find out what it is. I now seem to have the darker red/burgandy taking over the green in the tank, and i have also spotted some new yellow coloring and i felt the algae and it does not feel slimy

    so the dark red, almost purpleish color is definitely taking over the green, i've been seeing more of it on other rocks that have green
