Everywhere. I have fake decorative plants, and those are covered, a plastic rock cave that is covered, the gravel is becoming coated, and now it is sprawling up the glass sides. You can only see the growth on the glass if you really look, but there was one particular spot on the glass where a small dot grew to the size of a quarter after a few weeks (brownish orange mold, I searched but couldn't find any picture example). I scraped the spot off with my small fish net, but what to do about all of the other stuff growing is over my head.
I'll keep hunting for a picture to help describe it.
Edit: Possibly brown algae? If that's the case, would a small pleco help to keep it at bay with the ghost shrimp helping out? I'll try keeping the light on for shorter periods of time. I usually turn it on when I wake up at around 7-9 and turn it off around 11.
