Hairline algae problem

I just got a used 12 biocube and im having a hairline outbreak. Why and how can I fix it. For some reason my 55 gal never got hairline algae blooms but my biocube is and I dont understand why. I just put the protein skimmer on it and a 240 gph hydor powerhead. I thought more water movement would get rid of it, but its still growing. Thanks

Usually excess nutrients try scraping it off vacuuming it out then feed less

Emerald crab maybe? I hear blennys are good algae eaters tail spot blenny doesn't get big either go check if he will eat it if he does its a good bet. Snails too I like the bumble bee sbails
