Could be the food you're feeding too. I use NLS and it leave a pinkish red tint.

about the only way you would notice any blood in the tank is if you slaughtered a cow above it. One or two fish simply dont have enough blood to be noticed in a 55gal, or even on a filter.

Likely either food, red tinged poop, or bacterial growth.
