I have a 32G biocube and im getting a lot of algae lately i did a little of research and found that lighting has also something to do with it
I changed my loghting schedule to the following.

Lighting Schedule:

LC1 (Daylights): 11:00 am to 7:00 pm
LC2 (Sunrise / Sunset): 10:30 am to 7:00 pm
LC3 (Moon Lights): 7:00 am to Midnight

Does anyone have the same set up tank with this lighting schedule? Does it work?
I also have added an algae and aiptasia control crew, emerald crabs and peppermint shrimps!

The light schedule really depends on your corals. Are you using RODI? What are your parameters?

I have a large chalice, zoanthids and acons. This is my light schedule, they are all very happy.

Lc1- 12 to 3
Lc2- 10 to 8
Lc3- 9 to 9

Agree with @lapin , maybe you need to do a 10-15 gallon waterchange.
