Bought a new eheim led 54l for the kids.
What kind of algae is this?

Its been up and running a week, have 2 goldsfish, one filter is new and the other been in the 720l to get bacteria.

Also half of the water was from the big tank.

Started with just 8hr light
Flow rated around 5-600l/hr
Low feeding
Did a fertilazing easy life plant

No2 is under 0.01
Ph is at 7.0

What am im dealing with.

More nutraint? More light?
Less?

Buy algaekiller?

I Think its brown algae and its understandable.

Got Melanoides tuberculatus from my other tank and looking for Planorbarius corneu.

I also put in the plant Cerathophyllum demersum since its compets of the same nutrition :)

I wouldn''t worrie for now.
Give a bit less hours of light ( 6 or so)
Start adding ferts and do waterchanges twice a week till plants are growing well. (this can take a few weeks 4-6)
Remove algae by rubbing leaves.
If plants are growing well you can start decreasing waterchanges and ferts.
