Too late but, if you cycle your tank with the lights off you can avoid algae issues. At this point I'd recommend reproducing snails and a bristle tooth tang, like a Tomini, which eats detritus and sand bed (and rock) algae.

As many naturalists and environmentalists have suggested, we should set aside our arrogance,
our desire to conquer and control everything, and walk hand in hand with Mother Nature. -Walter Adey
