well the brown algae usually covering everything at the early stages of an aquaruim is brown algae or diatomic algae :) hehe you already know what it is :)

its a common and actually for me normal algae since it SHOULD only appear in the first few weeks when you setup a new tank. You could just lightly wipe it away and if your tank parameters are good it will just dissapear.
