Brown Algae on Small Leaves

I've been having brown algae grow in my tank at a fairly slow rate for a while now. I've mostly addressed it by scrubbing patches of it off of my leaves/ glass as they arise.

The biggest issue I have encountered is with my small-leaved plants (such as s. repens). It's difficult to scrub these leaves without damaging them.

Does anyone have any advice about how to treat this?
