Brown Algae

We’re often trouble shooting for people with algae worries so thought a quick summary of one we were recently asked about, Brown Algae.

It’s normally found within new aquariums where filters are not mature and ammonia is found (NH4). Its easily removed with a cloth (but don’t rub it too hard). There are some algae eaters that enjoy grazing on it such as Otocinclus.
