updated pictures at 3wks

Alright guys I am 3 weeks into this and I think its looking good with good results on fish so far. I have been detecting some ammonia, nitrite and nitrates however. Been doing a 40% water change ever other day.

That is diatoms, or commonly called brown algae. it is usual in new tanks, during the first 2-3 months normally. It will dissappear on its own. I would rub it off plant leaves but otherwise not worry. The normal algae-eating fish like Otos, Farlowella, Whiptails, plecos will eat this and common green algae. I don't recommend getting special fish just for this, but mention it in case you are planning such fish as part of the tank.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
