What could work is leaving the light on for more hours a day. And you can
go to petsmart and buy a moss rock that could help too.

Place a couple of the rocks from the aquarium outside in direct sunlight in a pail of tank water. This should quickly promote algae. Of course, there ar many types of algae, but see what appears.

I would be careful about increasing the tank lighting intensity, you don't want to blind the fish.
