I seem to be having a problem with brown algae. It is on the glass under my substrate bad and I have to clean the glass every other day or so to keep the glass clean. I read that plants in the sump can help, but I don't have lighting there. Another place I read that there are attractive plants for the display aquarium. The local fish store said that I have my lights on too much and strongly recommended against any plants in the display. I keep my lights on all day, about 14 hours. Thoughts please!!!
