Yellow water?

Ok this is day 5 of my build and my water has a yellow looking color, I think it's my 45lb of fiji live rock it was shipped in a box with newspaper on it, I didn't rinse it. I also added 40lb of live sand. Here's a pic of it thanks

Looks yellow because of the bulbs. Different bulbs give different spectrums and give your tank different colored looks.

But on day one and two it didn't look like that, also I had the tank running for a year and it never look like that with the bulbs or you think the bulbs are old.
