So a newly reset 55 gallon tank with 2 T5 HO bulbs and CO2 that is well stocked?
That is a good amount of light, what fertz are you using? My well lit and CO2 enriched tank only took off once I learned how to use nitrate, phosphate, potassium and micros.
Good that the plants are growing, red happens when it happens don't be concerned. The tank is likely to go through some algae burps. Green Dust and diatoms are the usual first arrivals. If you have strong plants growing well then they may not stick around for long.
