I have a small biocube, 29 gallons. I have several pieces of live rock. The biggest piece has this red slime stuff on it. I tried taking it off. Big mistake. it is now all over the big piece. What can I do??

Turn off your lights for three days , cut back the lighting schedule, make sure you're not over feeding , and move your tank away from windows(if it is by one).

+1 on the bulbs, also look into the lack of flow in the tank.
