Since the tank isn't planted, easiest fix is to turn the lights off. Algae can't grow without light. Second suggestion is learn how the biological filter works in your tank and how to care for it. Sounds like you have too much light (for a non-planted tank) and the ammonia problems often associated with an immature tank.
