    Well after setting up the new tank (still kinda empty) I realized I didn't turn the co2 back on. :( Neverthe less I now have algae. Not bad, yet but still very visible. What is it? Its very slimy and brown when remove from the water. Other possible causes (besides Co2)?

    Most of my new tank setups get a slimy brown algae as part of the cycling process. They are called diatoms and almost always go away on there own after a short time. Thats my guess. ;)
