OK I have been cycling my tank for 3 weeks and now my sand is starting to turn brown, is this normal and how do i get rid of it? I have a 55 gallon tank.

It is normal for the sand to do this. What I did is stir the the top portion of the sand.

i had the same problem, my tank is 55 gallons and has also been running for 3 weeks. jsut stir the top of the sand a little bit and make sure you change the water and in a month or so it should be fine
