ok so nutrients in the sand got in the watter. If I let it grow on the backof the tank along with watter changes it will fix it? .and what if my sand gets stirred slightly with watterflow?

Yeah movement from your flow is fine. Your best bet is just manually remove what you can and do a few extra wc's and maybe try reducing the lighting period a little and feed less too

BigRedsReefs1 is right, most likely that's why it's happening

Go to reefcleaners.com and buy a clean up crew from John.

At this point, might be worth considering getting rid of the old sand completely. If it's still causing issue, might be time to change

Don't add any new animals to the tank with ammonia and nitrite present you may lose them any clean up crew added is only a bandaid solution you want to eliminate the main issue

Ok so this is what im working on... I got most of the sand out and did 3 watterchanges over a week. Also I redused light intensity. Hopefully this works for me. The green on the walls is slowly comming back.
