Brown algae on my sand... Now gone

Hi every one, I just had a problem with my 28 gallon saltwater tank...
I was getting brown algae on my sand and couldn't figure out why ?
Cus my tank has been set up over a year now and the cycle should have
Well been over that point... Well come to figure out that it was the food I was feeding my fish... Emerald entree, plus the plankton I was feeding my corals mix together it was causing algae to grow on my sand... I think it was because the emerald entree has some plankton in it as well so it was a over load of plankton.... What do you all think...

Definitely possible. If the food goes uneaten, then it will rot, causing algae blooms
