The lights that I have on my tank is a two light fixture, one light white or other I'd blue. I got them from petco, called ocean something. I've been trying to save up to get better lights.

Algae is caused by excess nutrients too, not just too much light. How often and how much do you feed?

Yeah, 1 whole cube for 2 fish was likely part of the algae problem. That's a lot of food for 2 fish.
