Could be, I didn't do an acid bath with the knowledge that it might leach phosphates etc.
Phosphates are at 1.5 but some must be bound by the early algae.

Not sure I understand what you're getting at - do you mean placing the existing LR in more direct flow?

Not currently feeding the tank, as there are no inhabitants and I have already initiated the cycle.

I have them in good flow currently, and no disrespect intended but I'm not trying to get the cycle to go any faster - the bacterial seeding is already done.

What Red mentioned seems like a good explanation, as I'm not feeding the tank right now.

No prob glad to have discussion! Seems like the rocks are the best explanation. The diatoms are really taking off at this point btw, and the ammo is starting to drop.
