Brown Algae


Recommended Posts

Okay so I am 5 days into cycling and i am getting a good amount of brown algae growth on the live rock(also what looks to be the tiniest little shrimp running around the algae eating it i'm assuming). Is the algae okay? from everything ive read it seems to be fine just a normal process just wanted feedback.

Normal Diatom outbreak. I am 8 days into cycling. I have the same thing.

It's just in the normal process of your tank becoming cycled. If it happens later when the tank is established it's a sign of excess nutrients in the water
