Brown algae that covers the glass is typical. If you have brown algae in other areas, such as on the live rock or sand, then this may be a sign that your alkalinity and calcium levels are not within the desired range.

the canister filter isnt the best approach to saltwater filtration. a quality skimmer is def. the way to go. read online reviews as some are worth your money while others arnt worth your time. welcome to the forum.
