Describe the algae. If it forms mats on the substrate, it is likely to be blue green algae or cyanobacteria. Whenever I had it, it was because nitrates were too low, although it can show up at any time when the nutrient balance is on the fritz. Maracyn (erythromycin phosphate) will kill it, but it will keep coming back if you don't target the source i.e. nutrients.
In college....so no aquariums for a while.....
