New tank phase?

Ok so I'm done cycling and and I have added a few fish which are doing great. I'm starting to see brown stuff on my sand... Is this just a phase of algea?

Diatoms. All new tanks get it. Look it up. It'll pass.

P.S. - changed your thread title also. Try to more descriptive in the future so more will read it and help you.

Good luck with your new tank.
