Quick Question

Hi,I have a 10 gallon tank which has been set up for abt 2weeks after cycling and i have to common clowns in the tank and they are all eating very well. I use a HOB canister filter and i have about 5 live rocks. I noticed that afew days after i did a pwc there seems to be brownish "grains" of sand like substance appearing on my tank floor. Is something wrong with my tank or is this common thing which happens. Also i wanted to ask if a scarlet cleaner shrimp will help sift sand and eat leftover foods in a aquarium. Thanks

Almost sounds like Diatoms to me. If you want something good to sift the sand and take care of waste get some of these.
