Just play around with it until you find something you like. I'm a big fan of the reef crest mode, although from time to time I switch over to the short pulse mode for a standing wave.

Sounds like your done your cycle. If you have no ammonia source anymore (shrimp removed or otherwise gone) then that's it. A 50% pwc and you should be good to go.

As for diatoms, that will normally come later. Once the Bactria in the sand bed build up and start consuming your silicates it'll show for a bit then normally go away

I would sart by adding 1 fish, then wait a week or two to add another fish... And so on. But with that first fish, you could add in a few CUC members. Few astrea snails, a conch, couple banded trochus snails, few hermits. They'll start on any algae ya got in there. So what kinda fish ya thinking of??

So don't worry about the diatoms, diatoms is die off right so I know the yellow water I have is from the die off of the live rock so the sand will also do the same? With the diatoms will that effect the fish and CUC?
