Help..Loads of brown algae

My 75FOWLR is about 1 1/2 months old, it has 4 damsel and 1 trigger. But there are alot of brown algae developing. What can I do about it? I know snails and hermits will help with it, but I don't want my trigger to eat them. What else can I do?

Thanks

You have diatoms. They will burn themselves out and disappear, patience
