I have tons of brown Algae help..!

I have alot of brown algae all over my rocks and my glass. My tank finished cylcing over a month ago and I'm not sure what to do. I have a clown fish and a yellow watchman. I have a powerquad 96 lighting system. Good skimmer and good filter. What should i do? and will it go away?

you're sort of in that awkward stage. I had various different algae blooms for the first few months. Do you have a clean up crew in there yet? Some snails, hermits (if you like them) a brittle star... they'll help with the algae if you don't already have some. Other than that, just keep on top of your water parameters and make sure you're using RO water for top off/water changes and the algae will eventually clear up.

This happens all the time. BillyZ pretty much covered all the bases. Don't worry about it and just hang in there. You'll get through it eventually.
