I cant sem to match it up to any types I have seen at the identification sites. It is red, very soft, hard to remove and only seems to be growing on my drift wood. It is spreading pretty fast on the drift wood and niether my SAE or my mollies are intersted in it.

I've seen it rarely on wood only.
Clean the wood(take it out and bleach it/H2O2 it) etc.

It's not BBA, I'd need a sample to ID it though.

I was afraid someone was going to say that! My wood is burried under substrate and glosso. Its going to be a huge task!
