It looks fine just brown. It'll probably take several months to get back to being the proper color.

Well, it's hard to say. Just watch your alk. IME, that's all you need to be concerned with at this time. Your calcium will stay on the high side with Oceanic.

IME= In my experience
IMO= In my opinion.

Personally, if i were you i would be doing at least 10% water changes. i would change around 15-20 gallons though.. check your levels and base your wc schedule on that. If alk goes down over the week, change water and bump it up.

Alot of people on here use Brute trash bins (food safe) and store a large quanity with a powerhead and heater in that. However if it is easier you can pick up a couple 5 gallon buckets from home depot and make water as you need it.
