You will get all sorts of algae pop up while it's maturing I would not worry to much about it :)

@Marty when I changed the tanks over I had a lot of new sand etc etc so was expecting it. I managed to salvage a fair amount from the old tank so that really helped cutting down on the time it needed to stabilise

I don't think I posted a pic before of the newest inhabitant. A great fish if you don't mind sand everywhere 😄

I had a pair of blue cheeks great for keeping sand bed clean ECT however I soon got fed up with digging out corals that got buried on the sand bed and cleaning all the sand of the rocks and the LPS they was dumping sand over and not forgetting all the sand that was in the water column and powerheads making it look like a 6ft snow globe haha

Hopefully yours will behave more then my pair did and they an absolute pain to catch should you need to :(

He dumps a fair amount into the water coloum which I can deal as nothing too sensitive in the tank. Just have to get the turkey baster out after a few days his speciality seems to be releasing a mouthful at the highest possible point just in front of the power head so I don't think it was just your pair 😃 @Marty

Thanks:

It's just what they do mine where always very active and stuck together but if you want perminant clean sand they do that job very well
