I am sorry, I cannot see the pics all that well. Can you describe the system? Filter, Skimmer, Test results (Nitrate, Calcium, Alkalinity and pH) and feeding schedule?

Are you using RO/DI water or tap water?

If you move a tank, you get some die off that could cause the tank to mature all over again. It's like a mini-cycle. You should be fine with letting the algae just subside over the next few weeks. What color is the algae?
