Change your bulbs. As they age, they produce too much red-spectrum light.

Make sure you are using RO water in your tank. Tap water can contain phosphates.

Buy some golf-ball size snails

Remove it the second you see it (I find a turkey baster blows it off in sheet that can be scooped out with a net.

Increase your water movement. Add another filter at the other end of your tank or use a power-head and wave maker.

Buy some calurpa to out-compete the slime for nutrients.

The most obvious, feed less. The above answers about bulbs etc are true. Try not to use an additive to kill it, you wont be solving the problem of removing excess nutrients. Water changes, feed less, and a good Protien Skimmer would do wonders.

Lower your nitrate and phosphate levels, add macroalgae in your tank or sump to outcompete the microalgae, and add a bunch of algae consuming snails.

go to the pet store and get an algae eater that can survive in a salt water environment.
