Most of the brown is probably just diatom algae, which is pretty common in newly set up tanks. It will go away on its own. It is easy to wipe off from the fake plants, tank sides and decor. Are you doing weekly water changes?

The brown on your plants is probably them adjusting to the new water. Clip off the dead brown stuff, and give the plants a while to get adjusted and re-grow.

What kind of lighting do you have over your aquarium? Do you dose any fertilizers? What about injection of CO2?
