[APD] Re: Name that organism - red spots

The red stuff looks like it might be brown algea. What are your light conditions? Brown algea grows just like green algea but when you have low light conditions. Brown algea looks like a faded orange color.

Does anybody know what this red growth is?
I've had it for years - it is slow growing but is getting out of hand. 
It has only shown itself in one of eleven tanks so it doesn't spread easily.

What conditions does it like? How to control it?

Pictures are here:
