    stress, unbalanced water parameters, excess zooanthelle/excess nutrients, lighting... i'm sure there are a ton of other possibilities

      Could be for many reasons but typically in our tanks because of high nutrients, not enough light.

            Nick, it's near impossible to color brown w/o some extensive filtration on one's system. Did you suggest ZEOvit? Bob
