Brown spots......
hello everyone :-). I think my 5gal tank is fully cycled and I am ready to start adding fish again. But recently, i have noticed little brown spots on the glass of my tank. What are these? my first thought was brown algae........

Sounds like algae. Very normal for a newly cycled tank.
Just take a sponge or scraper to it.

sounds like diatoms .. common form of algae that is forms in new tanks. Just keep up with your weekly maintenance and should have no problems.
