    The brown algae is common on new tanks it will eventually go away. I think the green is starting to clear.

    The pleco I'm giving you will have that brown algae cleaned up withing a day Wink
    Give it time and keep up on the waterchanges, you probably should double up on the waterchanges now that you have the UV running, it will probably help it clear up faster.
