Seeing green on my live rock

My 20 gal is in its 1st cycle. Yesterday, toxs were good, but salinity was low. Did a 50% water change. This afternoon, added my new led lights and noticed green all over my live rock. Should I worry? Should I check toxs and add CUC? Thx

You should get a CUC eventually but that's just regular green algae. No need to worry.

Green means a healthy tank. The nitrates may be getting high so check them to see if a water change is needed.

I just did a 50% change yesterday, but I'll have the tox levels rechecked. Can't hurt to be safe. Right? Thx
