without any plants bout the only thing you can do is keep cleaning up the glass.

It will die off the glass with no light and no food being added.

Eventually I will get a larger tank to start a community, and I will put the 10g in my bedroom and get a Beta. They look so pretty. It pains me to see them in tiny cups at the pet store :( they don't even have room to swim! Thank you for your advice, I will reduce the amount of light I give them and I will certainly do more cleaning.

I had the same problem when I first started eventually I was advised to black the tank out for a couple of days. I put a bin bag over it. After two days algae was gone. Hoovered the gravel and it's been good since.
