Brown Algae

Hey guys my tank has been invaded by brown algae and i dont know where it came from. i have a wet dry filter, seaclone protein skimmer which sucks, 75 gallon tank, about 100 lbs of live rock 3 damsels, 1 bluebanded goby and a xenia which i added a couple of days ago. Any thoughts?

Are you sure this is an algae and not a diatom bloom?

Take pride in what you do, for it is a reflection of who you are.

how long has the tank been running? how long are your lights on and how old are they?
