If you do not have nitrates, your parameters are not all good. Your tank is not cycled so I would work on that first and then worry about the algae. Plus, the shrimp like the microorganisms that grow on it.

I swear I've seen this post 3-4 times

The only thing I can say is don't worry about it.....there's a lot of bare surface receiving light and not many plants...so algae will naturally grow.

Rotala rotundifolia, hygrophila corymbosa, guppy grass are some fast growing weeds
