I guess you are dealing with a new cycle because you have killed a lot of bacteria by removing the rocks. Get yourself a test kit for ammonia and nitrite and monitor the situation. The brown stuff is probably some algae like you have encountered during the setup of your tank.

could be diatoms aswell: picture needed
