Hi krisha,
I have had the same problem with tanks shortly after setting them up. I usually have been able to combat it by cutting back on my lighting period and dosing with Flourish Excel (see sticky post in Algae Forum). After the algae has died back, I slowing start increasing my light period. I also reduce the amount of fertilizer in proportion to how much I cut back the light period (-25% light period/-25% fertilizers) until I start increasing the photo period. Keep going, algae outbreaks happen, don't get discouraged.
