Starting to get brown algae


Recommended Posts



I am starting to get brown tinge to my coral gravel, the tank is only 12days old and its not cycled is it normal to get that brown tinge/algae so soon? the tank is full with cycled rock if that will help


and will it correct itself once cycling has happened?


and what will eat it?

It is normal. Have you tested your water to see if ammonia & nitrites are zero? If they are and your nitrates are not too high get a cleaning crew to help w/ the diatoms, etc.
