i have had a build up of brown algae in my tank which i have now worked out was because of excessive lighting hours and so im not expecting much more of it as ive cut my hours down, however the bits that have already bloomed in my tank are an eyesore, i am happy to manually remove it from plants and other areas of the tank but will my tiger shrimp eat the brown algae? if so i shall leave it in there for them and let them clear it for me :)

Don't expect miracles there, best would be to manually remove them, you can leave a tiny bit in for the shrimp.
