Thanks guys! I am currently experiencing the most intense diatoms bloom (or something! Brownish green dust algae coating everything) I’ve ever seen. I’m guessing it’s the silicates in the new sand. 

Im assuming the best course of action is to do nothing as surely if it’s silicates it’ll burn up and dissipate eventually.

Yep, time is your friend. I like a few cleanup crew members to keep it stirred up (snails and small hermits), but a lot of people don't like them.

New arrivals. 8 Chromis, 1 Hippo Tang, and 1 Yellow Wrasse. 

Chromis. Never again. This is the second time I’ve attempted a school. They’re disappearing one a day just like the last time I tried this. Lesson learned! Three down, 5 left. Freakin Highlander in there.

New ATO from Advanced Acrylics. This is the first time I've purchased anything from them and was blown away by delivery time, price, and quality. It's 30 gallons, currently being used with a Tunze 3155. It would be pretty hilariously awful for some sort of failure to empty 30 gallons of RODI on my floor, so I'm thinking of adding a Neptune FMK as a third layer of protection.

I've also added a Mimic Tang, Mystery Wrasse, and 5 peppermint shrimp. The shrimps are for a growing Aiptasia problem. It was pretty intense watching my wrasses immediately attempt to eat them. They're fairly large peppermints and they held their own! After a couple minutes the wrasses decided my HEB meals were way less of a hassle and moved on with their lives. Awesome.
