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?

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

The tank has been running since March 6th and the lights are Coralife 2x10K, 2xActinic, 4 Moon LED's. Theyre are on about 12hrs a day. they are 4 days old.
