Depending on what inhabitants are in your tank my automatic answer would be Amano shrimp, my favorite algae eating machines

Look up blue green algae / cyanobacteria in an aquarium as see if it matches...

if so, you're looking at an initial chemical treatment to kill it, and then an overhaul on your tank maintenance to keep it away.

If it were easy we wouldn't be here
