Just started cycling... brown stuff appearing
The tank has been up for about a week. We put a large table shrimp in to help cycling. Today there is brown stuff on the LR
. I am assuming this is algae from reading the posts.
Do I leave the table shrimp in there forever? Until it totally disappears? It is looking pretty nasty.
Will the brown stuff go away on it's own or should I try to get it off the rock?
Here are my readings as of last night:
