I hate having to put medications in my tank, so I wouldn't feel comfortable adding chemicals to kill algae.
Leave lights on for less time, replace old tubes (old tubes don't benefit plants as much as they benefit algae), review maintenance/pwc
routine, you could add either snails or shrimp depending on the type of algae, feed less until the bloom is under control. Those are the only pointers that are coming to mind atm. I like algae so long as its not black beard algae or free floating in the water column. (I have sae
for the former and uv
sterilisers for the latter)
