[QUOTE="Gabecourter1979"]I've read that during cycling process that you may experience a fine brown dusting on all rock and sand bed called diatoms. It says it will disappear as fast as it appeared. I was wondering how long this process last? It started about a week ago and has gotten over everything. Should I be concerned or patient

Always patient it will go away not as fast as you want them to but eventually you will notice a difference as your tank matures
