ID:	296060 so just did a simple test and got these values. Also, still getting the brown algae (diatom). Just giving it time right now. Any suggestions? Did a water change a few days ago. Everything seems fine so far. CBS just molted, I am missing 1 snail and 1 hermit crab though. Starting to get worried.

Things look just fine. I wouldn't be worried about a missing snail or hermit. They come and go, both around the tank and with life spans.

I think my olive snail ate one of my smaller snails, I found the shell buried under the sand and doesn't seem like anything is in it. I hope that brown algae goes away soon because it looks ugly as hell

Yeah, diatoms are awful looking...but it isn't a long term issue.
As for the snails, if one dies another will clean it up. It is their job as a clean up crew.
