What other life do you have in the tank? It could be too many or too little depending and how much waste is being produced.

Don't panic about diatoms they are part of the natural process of setting up a tank. They will burn out and then you might end up with another algae, this is part of the tank establishing itself.

What I said up top is what I have in there right now but do I need anything else yet? I really want an emerald crab but I'm worried that he might kill my baby skunk cleaner shrimp that's only about an inch or 1-1/2 inches long.(not including antennas)
