What type of lighting period are you on? Are you adding any type of ferts? You can use screen material (window screen) to cover the light and it will reduce the amount of light.

What version of the Finnex? Ray 2? Usually means that your photoperiod is probably to long or there is something out of whack. Will need more details about your tank and setup to make a good guess. If you just switched to LED remember that they are a lot stronger than other lights especially on a 10g.

If using root tabs, I would cut back on the flourish. Unless you're heavy on stem plants, you Dont have anything to take those ferts out of the water column quick enough to out compete the algae.

I would back off to 5-6hrs until you get things under control. What type and how many plants do you have? You need to have a good amount of plant mass to be able to control the algae.
