Does Brown Algae cycle out?
 
I had BGA before when I had my lights turned on for 12 hours, reduced it to 10, and it seems to have stopped, but had brown algae.
So, I was just curious if brown algae cycles out just like green algae. Anyways, it's not that bad. I'm just curious.

Hi Dahcmed.:wave:

Brown algae has nothing to do with cycling. It happens mostly in new tank setups or when your tank has insufficient lighting.

This man speaks the truth, I had it for a while when I first started my 10 :)
