Algae Problem

I have a 75 gallon loach tank with a couple of large pieces of African bigwood and a luxuriant growth of Java fern, and Crypt. I don't happen to have any green algae just the reddish brown stuff, the tank has been set up for a year and a half the loaches are quite healthy, any hints on getting rid of the red or black algae and replacing it with green ? I use 1/3 city water and 2/3 RO, lighting is 2 40 watt flourescent full spectrum.
