There's really two ways to solve this problem

1) Find algae eating shrimps ASAP. However to clear the tank from this algae sooner, this shrimps might need a helping hand. You might have to pull some out with your hand. See if this does the trick.

2) Make sure all areas of your tank has some sort of water flow. If not, increase the water flow so that every area in u'r tank has new water circulating through. Lower the amount of light the tank gets each day. For me, I eliminated my staghorn algae problem by dropping 12 hours a day to 10 hours a day and increasing water flow.


A third option) WATER CHANGES.

Constant water cahnges always helps.

If these dont' work, then u might have some serious algae problem. But you won't kno until maybe two weeks down the line. Good luck with u'r combats.
