Haha what does it mean why you say go sexual. What exactly would happen to the tank if it does that?

Dumps a ton of nutrients into the water column. Some algae do this to reproduce. To avoid such, some run 24 hour lighting schedules on them to prevent such catastrophes

Not alot of people will use Caulerpa in their tanks, by chance it goes asexual, when it does, then it takes over your entire tank.......... Thats why there are alot of other better choices for macro algae.

I accidentally bought caulerpa for my fuge and realised it could do this. When it starts to go clear that's the time to get rid as it starts to turn sexual. I binned mine and started again with cheato as I was paranoid it would go everywhere. But your brown stuff looks like the start of my dino nightmare I added some new sand to my existing bed and it exploded with it everywhere. If it starts to get worse try doing a blackout for a few days
