    Once the requirements are met to promote the coralline growth, then yes...It will grow basically anywhere the spores land in the tank.

    That will be plenty of light for coraline to grow. As far as what ATI bulbs to get, you should get the colors that are apealing to you. Mix the colors for different effects. For instance on one of my tanks, I have two 10k whites, 1 actinic and 1 purple plus.

    Is there anything that contributes to the color of coralline in your tank? My old tank was all pink/purple but I'm noticing my new tank has a lot more green.

    Is that really red coralline in the first picture? I have that exact color on some rocks but thought it might be red slime.

    What conditions would promote red coralline growth specifically?

    the color of coraline does have to do with water parameters and lighting. there is some helpful info in this article. http://www.reeffrontiers.com/forums/...e-algae-60375/

    I have some nearly blood red coralline algae in my tank. It tends to grow low on the rock. This particular rock is fossilized coral, available at Petsmart.

    The tank is a standard 10 gallon, illuminated with a Reef Breeders Value led unit. High in blue lighting, very little white. Both the coralline algae and the numerous corals, zoas and various polyps are very happy.
