Ok. I think you're question is what to do about algae?

It means there are too many nutrients in the tank which means over feeding or not enough water changes. You have coral so you cant go "lights out" but try reducing the time the lights are on. Some fish eat hair algae which will help, but the nutrients will still be there (fish poop) good luck, hope I understood the question...
