I've had my tank going for a couple months now and it's pretty much fully stocked. I notice that there is increasing brown algae growing on everything. I'm wondering if I should get another algae eater to help with this - I've currently got a peppered cory and a bala shark. The tank is planted and I have the light that came with it on for 10 hours a day. Is this too long and what might be causing the increase of algae? It's also not anywhere near direct sunlight.
I had brown algae for several months. It does go away but it will take time. If it becomes too objectionable a gentle wipe will remove it from most surfaces.

The only things that happen quickly in an aquarium are bad things.
