Depends on the type of algae. What types do you like?

Feed a little more than usual if you have fish. My dad has a 40 gallon hex with a single electric yellow cichlid in it and a few big pieces of lava rock. It gets a lot of natural light (no direct sunlight) and he tends to overfeed. As a result, the heater, filter intake tube, and all of the rock is covered in black hair algae. The glass gets some green dust algae as well, but it comes off pretty easily.
