Best Answer

Halophiles can have various colors. Some halophiles are pink or red due to the presence of pigments called carotenoids, while others may be green or even purple due to other pigments such as bacteriorhodopsin or retinal. The specific color of a halophile depends on the type and abundance of pigments it produces.
