You have not yet hit the really nasty phase when the algae takes over the whole tank near the end of the cycle

//Update after noticing fish in the tank: Whatever you do, do not stick 45 pounds of new LR into that tank with any fish in there! Use a seperate bucket or even a trash can to cure the LR. It is highly reccomended that you cycle the tank with just LR, having fish in there will usually result in dead fish... You are going to need a bunch of test kits to keep an eye on everything. Normally you would buy fish AFTER your tank has cycled and you have added a clean up crew.
