kenneth- do you live in Philippines? If you do glad to meet you. I was born there and lived in santa mesa when i was younger.

Anyways back to your question- besides the rocks, do you have wood in the tank? Some times dye or tannins from wood give the water a brownish color.
It goes away by time....
Good luck on your tank! Let me know if you have any other questions.
