Brown stuff if called a Diatom Bloom. It will go away by itself in time, no need to worry.

You don't control it. Let nature take its course, it will take care of itself. I don't get the green algae, specially if you are having a hard time getting it off. To me it looks yellowish, and it will turn brownish, and that is a Diatom Bloom.

Some of the green stuff I think you're referring to looks like coraline. It comes in several colors, not just red.

Looks good right there. Maybe lil more bubbles in the neck itself, you should have them in the lower portion of the neck. Other than that, the thing looks petty good.

Well, right outta the box, prolly not going to see anything. Its called a break in period, new acrylic has resin on it from factory for storage reasons. If you would have given it a bath in vinegar and water, this would have taken the break in period down considerably.
