Brown algae is very common in newly established tanks. Many will see it come and go over the first 3 to six months. At worst it is unsightly, though not harmful.

As for your question of cleanup on, you should be able to simply wipe it off the leaves. Gently with your fingers or a soft toothbrush should work.
