Photos would help. That being said, without photos I would get Red Smile, Cyanobacteria. Looks like algae but its not.

Yeah that looks like Redslime. Few questions. How old is your tank? What are you parameters?
This is usually a low nutrient issue and to much white light. Change to blues, you can do a black out for 3 days. You can also use Chemiclean and follow the directions. Use an air stone. If you have a skimmer it will go crazy so what i did was removed the catch cup and let it bubble over. Hope this helps.
 

Are you still ordering livestock or are you going to wait it out?
