Hello my name is Ian Ballard,
I have recently started a 20 gallon saltwater aquarium 2 weeks ago. My pH has been at 8.2 and has stayed consistant and the nitrite levels have also been great. I noticed about 2 days ago that a brown algae has been covering my sand and now has started growing on my rocks. I would greatly appreciate advice on how to get rid of this algae and keep my new saltwater aquarium healthy. Thank you. Any and all advice about how to keep a aquarium healthy is awsome.

It is diatoms. Just let it run its course and in a few days they will pretty much be gone. This is a common occurence for a new SW tank that is being cycled. Just sit back and relax and let the tank do its thing. In no time you will be ready for fish and or corals.

Not everyone likes hermits but you could go get so as they will clean it up and you are going to need so kind of cleanup crew , they are a good place to start .
