I used a similar product to get rid of a little bit i had on my sandbed and it was gone overnight. Did my water change right after that and all is well.

When did you dose the slime remover and has it worked yet on the red on the sand?

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

Not diatoms. Its definitely cycanobacteria.

Guess I'd love to know what else makes sand red. We're all here to learn.

When you do water change , you vacuum it. Also steer the sand , the filter would help. But water change is the main, cuz the waste only can get rid from water change.
