Algae?

On the front of one of my tanks there is this brown smudge like growth, is this algae? It is on the inside of the tank.

Yup, sounds like brown algae, aka diatoms. It's fairly easy to rub it off with a sponge or paper towel. Mine kept recurring, so I got some nerite snails who take care of it.
