Brown patchs over glass are appearing due to cycling period of the tank. Remove those using a shaving blade or cotton cloth. They will be disappeared with time.

You are over feeding these unwanted creatures are growing.

Hydrogen peroxide is a harsh poison. It attacks fibroblasts in the human body, the oxidation effect is rapid and risky! I do not understand the predilection of people for such strong chemicals for aquariums... Brown algae is usually just freshwater diatoms, which are not as pesky as some algae can be, so easy to scrape off in a few minutes with a blade from any tank wall. A nerite snail will do it easily for you, or a Bristenose Pleco or a few cute Ottocinclus. ...
