    Hey all.

    I put 8kg LR in fmy new BOYO TL550 (130l) with a sg og 1.023 on saturday (6 Septemer)

    It had a fair amount of growth on it - it came out of a shallow tank with fast flowing warer from the shop.

    Now to let it cycle.

    the question is now my LR has a rust colour growth all over it - is theis normal.

    regards
    Roy

    Yip, sounds like diatom algae, normal part of the cycle, will eventually go away
