If tank is infront of a window:
And you want to physically fight the stuff, than to limit the light, add a piece of cardboard to the back to limit direct sun exposure. And buy a small pack of algae scrapper blade refills. Don't really need the handle, holding the rounded plastic blade in your hand directly is effective enough. And scrape the stuff off.
Also on the starvation front, you can help limit the growth by reducing the time your aquarium lights are on. A time of 8 hours is beneficial enough for plants if you have them, while minimizing the time algae can use it.

Hi, and welcome to AC! I agree with the above!Three-fourths of the Earth's surface is water, and one-fourth is land. It is quite clear that the good Lord intended us to spend triple the amount of time fishing as taking care of the lawn. ~Chuck Clark

You're getting old when you get the same sensation from a rocking chair that you once got from a roller coaster.
