Well it sounds like you are having a normal algea bloom for a new tank. I would check your parameters. It sounds like your Nitrates are alittle high? I would increase the size of your clean up crew extra Cerith and Nerite snails. Both of these Janitors do a great job of eating Diatom algae (brown algea). also Nass. snails.

post water parameters would help.
