... in my tank .. a new set up ... now about 7 weeks .. I have a "brown" algae that I ID'd as Diatoms ... not to be confused with true Brown Algae.

Do you have a microscope ??

Now there is also a fuzzy material that early on started growing on my ornaments .. I'm not sure yet what that is .. will have to look at some under the scope. My gravel is now turning brown !!!!

Any ideas anyone ??

Good Day .... B)
