Nutrients are an issue with marine diatoms and brown algae. silica and silicates are the most problematic but also nitrates and phosphates will feed marine diatoms and brown algae. Reduce feeding and livestock if necessary. BUY TEST KITS(affiliate): NITRATE: http://amzn.to/2ocULRl PHOSPHATE: http://amzn.to/2oEAvcs SILICATE: http://amzn.to/2od0F4V Add sponges as these may soak up excess silicates to starve the marine diatoms and brown algae. Add a cleanup crew such as banded Trochus and Astrea snails that eat marine diatoms and brown algae. Wait for your cycle to finish as usually marine diatoms and brown algae are caused by your aquarium not being fully matured.
