There are not many corals, is that correct? Would this dosage be fine?

Hello again.
after 3 months the rocks are turning brown, it is like a hard layer, with a brush it is not removed.
What can be? Any suggestions?
Remember that the rock was dead

What is your circulation? I recommend to remove this by water flow.

Thatís 100% diatoms. Every new tank goes through this. It will go away as long as you are not adding silicates to your tank
