Can we have some pics? I prob. couldn't help, but other people could. If it needs to be taken away, Algaefix is a good way to get rid of nuisance algae.

I tend to figure what your seeing is a diatom bloom. Is this covering your sand and rocks and basically appeared overnight? If so then you are seeing a diatom bloom. Now is a good time to do a 50% water change. You should be seeing 0 Ammonia and 0 Nitrite now if you test, if so you can now add a portion of your CUC. And yes, you need a skimmer soon.

Edit: there is nothing you need to do about the algae bloom, it will go away on its own in a week or two.
