The diatom bloom started so I put in three snails.
1 turbo and 2 turban snails. Salinity is still at 1.024.

Diatoms will go away by themselves. You risk losing the CUC by putting them into a none cycled tank.

O woops well sorry too late now. Snails have been moving around
and cleaning. We will see how they do. I thought I read somewhere that
they alright to put in a tank as soon as you see the diatoms bloom.

If there is ammonia present, you could lose them. But looks good so far!

I am going to get a test kit tomorrow. I will hopefully post them tomorrow.
On the third picture, Do you think the red algae is cyano?

Well, looks like it might be your Coralline starting, but. If you can wipe it off with your finger, then its cyano, if you can't then its coraliine.

Ok so I got my test kit from the pet store.

ammonia-0.0- not sure about this one the test tube never turned a color it stayed clear?
nitrite-0.0
nitrate-0.0
I don't know if these tests are accurate. I did top off the tank before I tested. Could this have something to do with why my tests all show 0?

Might want to retest. I do believe that Saltwater is heavier than freshwater.
