Algea on plants.

So I have algae on some of my plants. It's green. I also have some string like algae growing on another plant. Lol. That's new. Anyways. I dose 6 ml glute daily and run my lights from 9-12 and 3-630. It's not a major problem. It's still look nice. However I was wondering if there was a certain fish/snail that loves the green algae? I just don't like my leafs being coated with the stuff. Maybe this is normal??? My plants are growing great, so I don't really want to slow down the regime. Any suggestions?


May the force be with you.

55 gallon, glute and 5ml iron once a week. Yes finnex planted plus.
So whatcha think. It's not really noticeable until u get up close. But I sure would love my leaves to be clean. I believe some of the algae came with the plants.
