questions about cleaning live rock and substrate

after the crash of my tank live rock has grown alot of green grass looking algae and started developing sponge looking tubes outcroppings. Any ideas on reef safe fish that will clean up better than tangs? My live rock has started growing almost neon green patches where rock is chipped its also growing on the glass is this normal in a weeks period without fish? thanks for any help offered ahead of time.
