What kind of lighting do you have and what type of water. Lights for a coral IMO should be run longer 12 hours min. I would not add anything until you figure out what is going on in the tank. What kind of fish.? And how are they...
Brown stuff is it like a coating on the surface? If so it could be a diatom algae a natural part of a tank maturing.
What kind of water?????
