1. 7 colours in a regular rainbow, 8 (octarine, visible to cats and witches) on Pratchett's Discworld.

2. A very faint blue tint in pure water.

3. Pink comes from the (toxic) algae and crustaceans that they ingest in the highly saline waters of certain African lakes.

I wish to correct my acknowledgement on the questions:

 

I agree with  @MI5, @Cleoriff  and @pgn on Q1; @Cleoriff  and @pgn  for Q2 and Q3. Sorry, I didn't read all the answers properly.

 

I should add I'm acknowledging @pgn's first set of answers not his amusing second set of answers.
