A little off-topic, but I am wondering how long his tank has been cycling? It appears to have a bloom of diatoms.

Oddly enough that shot where he is coppying the color you can see a bunch of white sand around him that was red like everythign else then he buried himself up to his eyes in it. I didnt even know they did that

They are small algae that usually bloom early in a tanks set up. The brownish red stuff you have coating your sand, rocks, etc appear to be diatoms.

A google search will give a lot more info - I did not know whether or not I should include specific links to other sites.
