I just got done fighting a terrible algea problem as well.
I suggest doing a 80% water change with a good gravel vacuuming. and then get an unused sponge w.o chemicals to clean the walls off with. Then take all the plants out and rub them with your fingers in the water you just took out of the tank to get what algea you can off of them. if this doesnt work and if you have another tank/bowl that isnt already fully stocked I'd suggest getting either a snail, or an oto or two, and after the algea is gone from that bowl moving them into another tank.
