Brown algae problem

I had introduced some new coral to my tank and have created a brown algae problem that's making my tank look terrible! Any suggestions on how to solve this issue?

Pictures would help and your water params. How old is the tank? Without any of this it makes me think it's diatoms which will die off on there own

I will post pics this evening. But it almost looks like a dust on everything. All my live rock and sand is covered with a thin layer. My tank was about 7 years old and I just bought the setup used last week and moved it 3.5 hours to my home.
