Treat it like any other cyano outbread. Reduce lighting, limit nutrients, physically remove with airline tubing, and do a 20% water change after syphoning. Do this daily and the issue will go away. Even afterwards, continue to limit feeding as much as possible.

Ok will do thanks...I only feed every other day now and only a small amount because I only have two fish right now. It seems every time I get rid of one type of algae outbreak I get another one. My tank is only 5 months old, will it eventually level out ir will I always have to deal with outbreaks?
