Best way to manage Blue-Green Algae? (Cyanobacteria)

I have a Fluval Edge with a male betta and three moss balls with a cyanobacteria problem. I have stopped using the halogen lights and it has not stopped the blue green slime that constantly covers my moss balls. What is the best way to manage the cyanobacteria? ( This is a "new" tank.) Would the addition of some sacrificial plants use up enough of the nutrients to stop the bacterial growth?

I assume its filtered, how well do you clean it at each waterchange?

A air stone might help.
