I messed up when I bought my tank buy using the sand that came with it. It gave me a lot of problems at first so I'm in the habit of keeping a close eye on everything I can

It's all good. I've used them in freshwater community tanks. But now I keep lake Malawi cichlids for freshwater

If you are removing the diatoms as they appear, they will eventually export the materials they are using to grow.
