I know that this is a dumb question, but what causes brown algae?
I dont know if it is true or not but from my experience i have had brown algae in my low lighting tanks, and have noticed it dissapear in tanks where i add more lighting, though naturally it is replaced by different kinds of algae, once the dreaded blue-green algae. Was just curious if anyone else has noticed this.
Good point. Low light, lack of circulaiton and other factors can cause it to reoccur. Most of the time it is because the slime in certain location of low circulation may lose the slime coating. I put a large plant pot in my tank nce and wound up with massive amounts of diatoms right around it that didn't go away. The BN plecos loved it but it was an eye sore. I always chockoed it up to the planter being ceramic and the paint is silica based so I never considered the shade and possible lack of circulation as added causes.
