Brownish stuff in the tank

This is the second tank i have had i believe its normal in the beginning few months of tank life, i just cant remember the name and wether or not it goes away by itself. I am starting to see brownish red stuff covering my sand and rocks can someone please tell me what it is. And also with a 30g sump and a 110g DT should i be doing more then a 10g water change per week or is that ok
