ID Red Algae

On my flame moss only there are these small light red tuffs of what seems to be algae. Will anyone might know what this is? I'll try to get a picture later. I just want an ID so i can know what it is.

Black brush algae can sometimes appear red.

I agree, it sounds like it might be BBA.

I'd trim and discard before it spreads throughout the tank... Asap...
