I have some algea on my glass that looks like green spot algea, only it's not green. It's actually more brown looking. It's also on the decorations a little bit. I have a few ghost shrimp and a rubbernose pleco in the tank, but neither of them seem to touch it. Aside from taking the tank apart and scrubbing it out(which is what I did last time I had this problem), what can I do to get rid of it? Will anything eat it?

My tank's been running since late September/early October of last year. I only have the 15watt fluorescent bulb that came with the hood on it. I had a problem with this same algea in January and after much battling with it I gave up and bought all new stuff for the tank(except the heater, which I washed well before re-introducing to tank, and the biological media grid from the old filter). Last week I started noticing a little spot on the glass. This week it's a big spot and I also see some algea on the "waterfall" part of the filter(I don't know what the part's called).
