Brown spots on pipes and rocks all over!

I have these brown spots all over my pipes and rock everywhere and I am just wondering what it is. It is mainly on the base rock that I put in there to turn live. Any help would be great. Pic enclosed

TIA,
Josh

Its hard to tell from that pic. But I would just guess that its algae. If you don't like the way it looks, you could wipe it off. Otherwise, I would say that it won't hurt anything

It's really hard to tell from the pic... could be algae, could be flatworms, could be something else entirely. Any chance of a closer pic or more description?

It is just a flat brown algae type stuff, not flatworms
