Do you mean algae on the glass? That is just something that goes with the territory.
Other than that, macro algae issues won't grow that fast. If it is over the rocks and such it is most likely cyanobacteria. This is easy to believe due to not having any additional powerheads. I run a newer version of the red sea that you have and I was never able to get enough flow from the return and the three powerheads that they have built in. More flow will solve that issue.
