Do you have anything in the tank that will eat algae? If so just leave the light off for a few days and it will grow slower than it is consumed. I genuinely dislike chemical treatments for algae so the other alternative is to clean the glass and vacuum the substrate.

How big is the tank?

I have Chinese algae eaters (sometimes call siamese). They do a great job at cleanup and as adults continue to clean, unlike some algae eaters that get snobby and stop cleaning the glass as adults.

Those algae eaters can get 5" or so and I don't think you want to take up 1/3 of your bioload with it as its not a good looking fish compared to your cichlids.
