In fresh water systems as opposed to marine systems, phosphate is generally the limiting nutrient for algal blooms. You could try reducing the phosphate concentrations by getting some of that phos gone stuff. Or out compete the algae with more plants. Or dose with more iron if you have a fair amount of susbstrate to trap the phosphate at the anoxic/oxic interface. Or get some red cherry shrimp (they keep my hair algae right down). Or feed less. Theres a couple ive forgotten...
