No diatom stage?

Well the tank has cycled and all reading are good. But I have not yet seen the diatoms busting out. Could this be becuase my cleanup crew is pretty beefy (25-35 snails, half being nass. and other being astrea)?

sorry, didnt catch the tank size, but my first thought is, "If you build it, they will come"

29gallon, Im seeing just a light hint of brown on the sand on one side of the tank. I thought I remembered it coming sooner when I cycled the 10gallon but maybe I was mistaken.
