Red algae on live rock

From what I can tell this is NOT red slim algae. I added some live rock to my tank about a month ago and this red algae just took off and spread to all my live rock. Is this algae bad or good? How can I get rid of this red algae or turn this red aglae in to purple algae?

judging by the color i would say that is a mild case of cyano. What are the inhabitants of your aquarium? There are a few different treatment options, some more affective than others, if i know what's in your tank i can help you determine the best way to get rid of it.
