I have got a 180l cichlid tank and I have got a promblem with brown algae. I have scrubbed it off but it is starting to grow back, I have my light on for 7-8hrs a day. If you could help that would be great!!

Thanks.....

My pH sits at-7.4
My ammonia levels are safe
Change water every month
Feed fish once a day

What are the nitrate levels and how much water do you change?

What are the specs of the light - make, model, colour?
