75 gallon
7 peacocks
Magna 360. Cycled about 2 weeks ago
My rocks & decorations were white/off white, slowly started getting orangey-brown, now it has taken over! Brown EVERYWHERE?
Store recommended "blackout my tank? Turn off all lights and cover tank for 2-3 days?" Seems cruel to new fish? Is there another way?
Please, no rude remarks, I'm doing the best I can and I'm new to this.
Thank you for your time and consideration!

Welcome to C-F!!

Diatoms are common in new tanks so don't worry too much and usually resolve after a few months.
