You will always have algae. Unless the tank is toxic.

Algae is a natural part of every aquatic eco-system. I have algae in all my tanks, different types in different tanks sometimes, but it is kept in check by the plants provided I keep the light no more than what will balance the nutrients for the plants. But this is a delicate balancing act. Algae is always there waiting for the opportunity to increase. If algae isn't growing minimally in an aquarium, there is something wrong with the biology.
