Is it just on the sand surface or top to bottom? Sounds like it could be the onset of diatom algae, although a bit early considering you just started cycling the tank. What kind of lights do you have? If you could post a pic it would help.

Cheers
Steve

I believe is diatom. or some algae from the sand itself.

half my sand is dead now and it looks blackish. But now its turning yellow 2

The lights i use are 100% sun.

2 week cycling (and one comple drain due to overflow leaks)
