Hi.. My Biocube 32 tank was new and I added fish 3 days ago.
While it was in cycling i did not turn on the lights. I am using lights for past 5 days and now i see brown algae on the sand bed and on the side glasses.
Can anyone please help me to get this clean.

Good time to start testing for nitrate and phosphate and keep them in check.
You’ll have to do some extra cleaning for the next few months until your bacteria friends increase in population and diversity.
