We need more information (or a photograph). There are many types of algae, and each one can be caused by something different.

In general, algae is caused by an imbalance of (one or a combination of) light, CO2 and/or nutrients.

Fixing the imbalance will get rid of the algae.

Chulios66 I once had a goldfish tank that was covered with brown algae. Later, I added a moss ball to "help" get rid of it ( as I was told). Two days later, the moss ball was covered with it and eventually died.
