If you have a photograph, or can describe the algae in greater detail, it would be of greater assistance in helping us identify the algae.

In addition, if you can provide your aquarium parameters (lighting intensity, duration, type of fertilization, whether you inject CO2 or not, general water parameters, etc), we can also help identify what may be the root cause of your problem.
