Hey I'm just finishing my cycle and I had the same brown string like algae your speaking of. From What I've read these are diatoms. <correct me if I'm wrong. All I did for treating it was using my magnetic cleaner. I think what really eliminated it was RO water I started topping off with. I finally stopped being lazy and payed .29 cents a gallon refill at my local Meijer. :P
I haven't seen the algea pop back up since then. Maybe this will help ya. Good luck

First ever Saltwater Reef 35gallons!

Live streams down until my lighting schedule is back to normal
