Algaeeeeeeee!

I have lovely coloured live rock in my tank and it just seems to be being taken over by red, green hair and bubble algae. I'm getting a better skimmer which should help, is there anything else I can do? I have a Reefmax aquarium and leave the lights on for 10 hours per day, I've also got 4 hermit crabs.

Are you using ro/di water? What are your nitrates and phosphates? What is the stock? How much and often do you feed?

Yeah I top up with RO, I have about 7kg live rock, 90 litres of water and I've attached a picture of the coral.
