Tanks been running or 3 days
 
Ok tanks been up and running for 3 days... nothing in it waiting for plants to arrive hopefully latter today. However on my filter intake tube brown stuff is growing... Is this ok?

Hmm, is this a completely new setup? Sounds like algae is growing. What do you have for a light? Wattage? What size tank? Substrate? Need some more info to properly help you out but personally I wouldnt worry about it at this point.

+1 for those questions above!
Googel image results for brown brush algae is that what it looks like?
