Sudden Algae??

I never really had an algae problem with my three five gallon tanks, and then I moved to a different house. I really like the water quality better here because it does not taste like pond water. However, I suddenly have algae!! Why is this? nothing else has changed but the water. Could my water have more algae growing in the pipes and it is getting in my tank?? Is there anything I could add to the water and then maybe age it a little to make it still safe for the fish? I don't really want to add any tank mates to those tanks sooo.....

Sincerely, person who is getting really tired of scrubbing :)

You can get more fast growing plants. they compete for the same nutrients that algae needs and generally those fast growing plants win lol Things like Anacharis, Hornwort, water sprite and water wisteria are plants you'd want and they grow well under low lights as well.
