In the last week or so I have seemed to have inherited an algae

In the last week or so I have seemed to have inherited an algae
bloom or something. It is awful. I have dosed with chemiclean and
done a 15% water change. The stuff is just growing like grass in there
it is growing on the rock mostly and smothering out my coral. What
can I do quickly to get rid of this mess!!! Lights are on about 9-10 hours
a day for the coral in a 20 gallon tank. My phosphate is probably off
and nitrate. Corals don't seem to be looking too happy now and they
were thriving.

You need to get your phosphates under control. Also IMO I think your lights are on too long.
