I went camping for three days and I come back and the whole tank glass, live rock, and live sand is covered in brown right now my rusty angelfish is doing some work to stop it. I can also see my two turbo snails and bumble bee snail helping along side my camel shrimp. I have a 125 gallon tank can someone help please!

Clean your tank. Clean up crews help out but most of the cleaning is always going to fall on you. Is your tank new? Diatoms are a regular part of newer tanks. Keep up with your regular maintenance and it should go away.

The essential bacteria for your tank is located in the live rock, not the water. If you used new rock and old water, your tank still has to cycle. If you only used old water and that's it, your tank is still brand new.
