    As you just set-up this tank, then I would say what you are experiencing is diatoms. They really are not a typically algae. They typically occur in set-ups with newer substrate the leaches out silicates which diatoms need to survive. Once the silicates are gone from your water, the diatoms will disappear on their own.

    I would suggest to change your maintenance routine as well. Change at least 50 to 75%% of your water each week for now and clean some of the substrate with each waterchange. Every month or so you will also need to reinse out the filter media from your sump in old tank water. You don't want any crud to build up in there.

    I would also suggest to get a liquid test kit for at least ammonia, nitrite, and nitrates. Test weekly just before your weekly water change. If you find any ammonia or nitrites in your water or if your nitrates get over 20ppm, you will have to make changes to increase the size and frequency of your water changes

    Once you have this under controll, you should look into your stocking level of this set-up

    How long do you think the Brown algae will last?

    That will depend on the amount of silicates in the water. Anywheres from 2 to 4 months at the most would be my guess. They will go away a lot quicker if you were to follow the above suggestions
