As has been mentioned by other members, the type of algae makes a difference in how you handle it. Also, no mention is made of live plants or not, and these make a difference.
The type of light also impacts algae. Light that is high in the blue spectrum, as 10,000K is, encourages algae more than light around 5,000K-7,000K which is less cool [the blue] and more warm [toward red]. Reducing the period of light is also significant, or even leaving it mainly off if there are no plants.
On the fish, although i do not recommend zebra danio in a 10g tank, since you have them i would get two more for a group of six. They will be better.
When I know about plants I can offer more.
