Yeah your sand should turn back the same color as before, just give them time to burn off. Let nature work its magic..

I've got the diatoms too in the 125g they should be gone soon. I had them in all my other tanks and they all went away.

hmmm i wonder what diatoms look like on black sand? lol My pico is due some brown stuff soon hehe

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
