Keep the tank out of direct sunlight, that should help immensely. Also, if you don’t already have one, get a magnet algae scraper. One magnetized piece goes in the tank and then you control it with the other magnet from outside the tank. It works wonders and makes tank cleaning much easier

some questions:

  1. how big is the tank?  
  2. what filter do you have on it?  
  3. how long do you leave the lights on?  

i’m always loathe to use products in water with shelled animals, so take a look at your take with these questions in mind…it’s possible one of these aspects needs to be adjusted to prevent it from coming back.
