    Welcome to MASA.
    A pic would help with the identification.
    How long is your tank running? It is obviously still in the cycle process.

    The brown algea is the start of your bacteria bloom. You will see that in time your rocjs will turn purplish.
    And no. Its not bad. Just make sure on your ph levels and so forth
