    hi all , I’m a beginner in reef hobby and its been 5 days after my first reef tank set up and my live rocks started loading some grey layers and it spread very fast even over the sand . It looks to me some kind of fungs. Can some one look into the image and advice me please.
    Tank - 150 gallon
    Live sand and live rocks loaded

    That looks like Diotoms, at 5 days your tank should be just starting to cycle. Have you tested for ammonia yet?
