    I have had my salt water tank set up and going sense march. My tank went through the cycling stage just fine. I have a deep sand bed in my tank and live rock. About two weeks ago I started noticing my live rock had this brown stuff growing on it. This is where my question comes in, is it good algae or bad algae ? I have had my water tested and everything is in good parameters. I do have a protein skimmer going all the time , and I have a few power heads in my tank. If its bad Algae how do I stop it from growing and not coming back again.

    From a quick look at it, you have diatom and cyano.

    Are you using RO/DI water or just treated tap water?
    Think with logic and rationality more than emotion. Act with moderation and consideration. Contemplate ideals and realistic goals and weigh out possibilities and options. Temper not with personal delusions or false hope but learn to accept and move on.
