Uh-oh! algae attack!

I have brown algae starting to cover my rocks...I also have green hair algae forming on the glass and some on the rocks..how can I keep this under control? Perhaps an emerald crab?..any suggestions lmk! It showed up on my glass almost over night! I currently have 5 hermits and 5 snails in there..2 clowns and a firefish as well.. should I just let it run its course? Im not so much worried about the brown algae as it is a newer tank and I know it goes threw its stages..but what about the green hair algae? I think it may have came in with some of my frags..
