The brown could still be diatoms. Just make sure you have both N and P present or you will have issues. Availability of nutrients is very important.Sandbed in the rear has started to brown up again. I just threw a towel over the tank to black it out for a couple days. I'm nervous as I'm leaving for VT on Thursday for a week. My sister-in-law will be taking care of the tank (feeding) while I'm away. I can't expect her to notice any major differences because she doesn't know what she's looking for.
I'm going to continue running the UV sterilizer. I'll also test the params tomorrow morning to see where we are at. I want to make sure I have enough time to order something or pick something up (I.e. nitrates for dosing) if necessary.
If you were me, what would you do? @TheShrimpNibbler @reeferfoxx @Tahoe61
By the way @reeferfoxx I returned the Vibrant
As far as someone else feeding the tank, make sure to set portions aside. Dont tell them a pitch of this or that. Like literally put portions in a weekly pill case. Only then they can't mess anything up.
