Not content with just Dinos, I think it's Cyano, too.

Aside from the slight bubbles and stringy junk of Dinos, I saw a pretty bright red/orange clump of "stuff" on one of my rocks. It looks like this:

Is this Cyano starting to pop up, too? Feel I can't catch a break with this new setup.

Possibly the cyanobacteria Spirulina.
