And yes the little bubbles that I was complaining about a few days ago have stopped.

A foot thing? Or you ment a good thing? If you ment a good thing than that's what I want is the purple, I don't care all that much for anything else.

Ammonia has risen and now fallen looks like my cycle is running good. I added 20lb of live rock last week. I have brown algae growing on the rocks and the sand.

That brown algae is diatoms. Normal for new tanks. It'll dissapear on its own.

It will last as long as there are silicates in the water. That is what if feeds on but once it consumes it all it will die off. It is a good sign that you cycle is progressing. You just need to wait it out. Good thing is, it should be all gone by the time your cycle is completed.

It also looks like there is a thin film on the water service is this the same thing as the brown algae?
