Should I clean my Live Rock?

Hi, Can someone tell me if I can clean my Live Rock. It doesn't look very nice anymore. We are getting slimey stuff on the glass and all over everything. I had some Purple spots growing on my rocks. I just need to know if I can just brush them off and start over.

The purple stuff is probably coralline algae thats a good thing.If your just wantin to clean hair algae,etc just get a bucket of tank water then one piece at a time scrub with a medium stiff bristle brush till clean.

red slime remover....

The slimy stuff on the glass? if it's red you have red slime and it will take over your tank!!! You can by the red slime remover at a local fish store and treat this and repeat it 48 hours later. then do a water change in like five days!!!!! be sure to siphon out as much as you can before you treat this!!!
