I have had my new tank up and running for about 3 weeks now. I started off with 24lbs of base rock, about 5lbs of LR

about a 2" base. I have not been doing water changes as I am in the midst of the cycle, but over night, this ugly algea showed up. It is a rusty brown color and is easily blown off the rock. Is this normal for the cycling period, or should I get a snail or a few snails to clean it up? Here are my water levels as of yesterday:
Let me know what you think...
