HI Folks,

Recently I've added Anubias petite and Nana Gold to my tank. Also adding some flourish excel thrice a week in an adequate amount. I can see new leaves growth in all the rhyzomes, which is a great sign of good health. But the leaves which is straight beneath the top light are getting dirty(Please find the picture below).

Please tell me how to clean this or avoid this?

It appears to be diatom algae. It can be avoided by less lighting and low nitrate levels.
Just simply brush it off with your fingers or with a toothbrush.

I tried to scrub it off using fingers, most of the dark area got cleared but these small dots not going.

Thanks folks, I've successfully cleaned the algae dirt from the leaves. I used simple flat drawing brush to scrub it.
