Ever since I have added live coral to my tank algie seems to be blooming out of control I'm not sure if it's a diatom or what also there's red algie I'm not sure if it's red coralne or red slime

more than likely the latter cyano, its a proble with alot of tanks theres lots of ways to get rid of it personally pulling as much of it out you can or vacumning helps so does a large efective skimmer and water changes and reduced light.

it will pass if you keep everything in check i get outbreaks now and then but it goes away..but unlike diatoms it needs a kick in the but to get going:)

you should add a description of it or a pic for us to be sure its cyano:):) also water parameters/livestock/tank info:):) cheers

Melev's ALGAE (sp) ID page is great for determining what you've probably
got.
