Brown algae problem??

I have some brown algae in my tank!!! What can I do to get rid of it???

There's some on my white sand, rocks and parts of the glass that I scrub off every now and then.

I only have my lights on for about 5-8 hours daily!

I've had that problem before. I was told that it's from over feeding and therefore too "enriched" water. I just scrub it off with a paper towel.
