For me, careful watering can keep them under control. I try not to
overwater...ie, saturated pots sitting in a tray of water. Algae are more
sensative to the top of the pots drying out so I try to wait until the
pots start to dry before adding more water. Also I imagine fertilizer
amount and type may play some role. 
good luck
Mike
