brown algae

ok so my tank was over run with the brown algae phase about two weeks after the cycle, is it burning when it starts to shrink up? i got home yesterday and to y surprise either my 3 turbo snails were very hungry or its burning up im not sure which has happened either way im happy to see it going away. also i have a large piece of holy rock from my freshwater that doesnt fit in my new fresh water tank can it be used as base rock and become live over time

It`s diatoms more than likely. They usually burn themselves out and disapear after awhile.
