To got rid af the brown algae I started putting purified h20 in it and kept lighting to a minimum. This morning I thought the problem was gone so I left the lights on when I went to school, no I came back and the rock is once again covered and the subscrate is starting too Sad I don't know what else to do ...

Just an update. Cleared itself up.. for good this time, been clear for a few days and there is no sign of it coming back. Fish are very happy and the tank looks great, I did buy a RO filter, wfor future water changes just to be safe. Thanks for the help.! Smile

Likely a phosphate problem causing diatom/cyanno.
If it returns you might try some turbo/margarita snails, one snail per 3 gallons... they will clean while you study.
