Well Looks like i am close. Looks like the cycle is finished I have some brown stuff on some of my sand. Nitrates high so should I do a larger water change?

Ammonia = 0, Nitrite = 0, Nitrate 55. How would I get this Nitrate down? I did a 15% water change but that did not help much. Any ideas?

Try another water change. Oh and as far as the brown it's just diatoms that will die off. I'd get a phosban reactor which are cheap will get rid of algae problems in the future. I ordered mines today and I'm excited Anyways good luck
