Find the source of the algae and eliminate it. Is the tank near a window or in direct sun light, are you feeding too much algae based foods? OR you can add a bushy nose pleco like Ancistrus dilocopterus to control the algae - if your set up will allow the addition of a pleco. Meaning you are not trying to breed egg laying Cichlids in that tank. OR you could buy any number of algae scrapping products for aquariums, my favorite is a razor blade you can buy in bulk packs of 100.

Hope that helps... Dan
