I have coraline algae where I don't want it

I set up my FOWLR tank last July, and am happy that I have a healthy covering of coraline algae on my rocks and tank. The problem is that it is starting to show up on the sides and front glass of my tank where I don't want it to cover. What is the best way to get it off? Is there an easy way, or do I need to scrape it off with a razor or something else? Thanks!

My last water test at LFS in December showed Calcium at 400 and Kh at 8.

Scrape it off with a razor if your tank is made of glass. You can buy one in your lfs and it's pretty easy to get the coralline algae off.
