hello

All my othervtanks are heavily planted tanks but i fancied some tanganyikan cichlids so their tank has fewer plants in as sand substrate so some epiyphites and chancing couple of amazons, any way got this brown hairish algae pn sand rocks and plants, been sucking it put every couple of days, tank is about 2.5 weeks old, cant adjust light brightness as lidded tank and using inbuilt led that came with this 2nd hand tank,you think this is like new tank syndrome and i should wait it out ?

as ed has already stated. this could be diatoms but without pics of your setup its hard to tell, you can reduce the light by using netting/ wifes/ mums stockings or floating plants like limnobium laeviatum, bladderwort.
