You need to identify the algae and then fix the reason it is there. Did you check the photos in the link Angel gave you? Here's another good source for identifying algae: PG: Algae - An Overview - PlantGeek.net
i will try and get a pic for you
also can anyone tell me if there is any smallish plecs
In the long run for a tank, its always easier to ID what algae you're dealing with (see my link above) eliminate the problem in your tank that's causing the growth. Anything else may that be a supposed algae eating fish or chemicals is only going to mask the problem but the problem will remain until such day you eliminated its cause.
