What kind of water do you use to make your SW mix and what kind for refilling evaporation?

What is your lighting and schedule ?

What is your tank and setup?

This should help too.

New to FW fish? First tank in a long time or EVER??? Need some info on keeping fish?

Get a UV sterilizer. Algea be gone for good in a week.

Afterwards stock with live aquarium plants like mosses or water wisteria etc. this will fight future algae outbreaks.

What type of algae will depend on the plan of attack. Water changes and reduce lighting will help weaken it but you need to figure out what you are battling.
