well there are different types of algae, but for the most part excessive growth is due to high nutrient levels in the water Nutrients+light= algae

the stuff on your glass is normal.. and good in some ways... It can be used to feed fish.. My fish know that scraping the glass means food floating around,
i clean in sections.. to let it build... (free food)

but water changes, with proper water levels, and limited feedings is how to keep algae growth down..
