Newbie question

My setup is 2 weeks old. Started with 34 gal redsea max 130d. 40 lbs of live rock. 25 lbs of live sand and nutrition seA water. My brown algae is gone and now I have green hairy algae developing on the gravel bed. Any advice. Do I let it continue or do I get something to eat it?

You will find it will lessen as the tank stabilises as this will be an algae bloom due to the start of the tank, you probably don't want to add anything yet to the tank at all until it has cycled. If you want to reduce it, reduce the lighting though
