Question Brown Junk on Silk plants

Hey, I have 2 big silk plants and a skull in Windu's 5g and this brown stuff keeps building up on them and it is unsightly and gross... What is it and how can I get it off the plants? (It comes right off the skull when I wipe it off)

Is your tank new? It's likely diatoms which are harmless to your tank. Warm water and light = good conditions for algae. My newly cycled tank has them too. According to what I've read here, as your tank matures, they will turn green in a couple of months. You can wipe them away. :)
