I just noticed this brown/greenish spot on the glass of my 5 gallon tank, does anyone know what it is? I haven’t tried anything to get rid of it yet. The tank has only guppies in it. TIA

That's Brown algae aka diatoms. Not fun. Every new tank gets them. Just wipe it off

Diatoms? Does it wipe away easily?

Generally, yes. Might even be able to scrape it off with your gravel vac.
