    I have a 75 gal reef tank that has been giving us fits since setting it up two years ago. After dealing with the red slime now I have small clusters of small brown pebbles growing out of the live rock, they are similar in appearance to my bubble coral only brown and under blue light they are speckled with a bright red dots. I have no clue as to what it is and it is in about 4 locations.

    Welcome aboard! A pic is pretty much a must in identifying anything. This is a great place for advice. :)

    Sounds like my red bubble algae. Mine looked more brown than red and had the same bright dots.
