So after a search, I cant seem to find anything about this.

I have some bright pink algea growing on the suction cup for my thermometer. Atleast I think its algea, its definetly spreading, but not to the silicone tank seams yet. Its not on anything but the suction cup.

Is it even algea? Or maybe just a chemical reaction changing its color? I have the same suction cups in 3 other tanks, under the same basic conditions and there are all still clean and clear.

Thanks!

I don't have anything pink in my aquariums, but I do get a pink buildup on my shower head and some other areas in my shower. I believe it is a buildup of fluoride that is added to the drinking water. I wonder if that's what you're experiencing. I've never heard of algae that isn't green, black or brown in freshwater aquariums.
