30 pounds was probably close to 1/3 of your total LR volume in a 75gal tank? I would immediately do a PWC, and look into adding some more rock back into the tank.

Hhhhmmm, my other thought then would be that you stirred up some debris from a dead zone when you removed the rock, and this is causing a mini cycle within your tank. I'd still do the PWC.

Yup. Something had to cause the silicates increase to start the diatom bloom.

So I did my water change and the next day it turned into the dreaded red slime algae...
