Algae problem

I recently added 2 strips of led lights to my canopy lighting (ECOXOTIC stunners 24") I had 1 all blue and I combo 8000k/445nm. I had originally only had 4 t5 lights over my 29g I also added an extra circulation pump. So I was using the blue 445nm at night as a moon light and running the combo along with the t5 during the day. After 1 week I have a ton of this brown fuzzy algae all over the place. Mostly on my rock and on some of my corals. Tank has been running for about a year. Only use rodi. And running a sump filter all my levels are good. Could it just be the lights. I'm also using red sea salt. I was using instant ocean. What can this outbreak come from and how do I cure this
