So is this diatoms, cyano, or Dino’s? It’s interesting that it’s primarily focused on my drags and not the rock. It doesn’t seem to go away when lights are off.

It’s a recently setup and cycled Biocube, setup about 2-3 months ago. I set it up to be my quarantine tank, but my drags are struggling with all this crud on them. All parameters are reasonable.
.01 phos
3 nitrates
1.025 salt
7.9 ph
7.1 dkh
400 calc
1200 mg

Any thoughts on what it is, and best way to handle it.

How do you take care of your tank after the storm? As the electricity and WiFi come back on, how do you get your tank back to normalcy?
