Wouldn't worry about the brown fuzzy whatever, I see this too now and then. Had it bad in 2 tanks for several weeks about a year or so ago, then it disappeared. Cyano was around at the same time, same tanks, interestingly.
I cut back to two flourish doses. Since the last water change four days ago fuzz algae not as bad, but green spot is starting to smother some of the floating Pennywort. In addition I have a new development, now there is a blueish green slime on the surface of the water in a small area of the tank. Wow, I'm really sick of all this. I researched a little and could be blue/ green algae? What should I do about that? Should I go down to one dose of Flourish? Treatments includes antibiotics which I definitely don't want to do! I just treated the tank with Kanaplex for the fin rot and busted my cycle! I checked the ammonia and nitrates on Sunday. The ammonia was .25 and 0 nitrates! I did my water change and added Tetra Safestart (TSS) and the tank cycled in two days. In addition I'm suppose to wait two weeks before I do a water change with TSS.
