    Do you mean the purple on your airline and suction cups? If yes is it anywhere else?

    Not saying that it is BBA but Black beard algae can be red, purple or black.

    It seems like a dust not an algae.

    I think they are talking about the plant below that, with the reddish leaves on top. It is plastic.
