Red/brown algae in loach tank

Hi there! I have 4 3-5" loaches in the same tank for about 3 years now - healthy and happy. I've noticed within the last 2 weeks, a brown algae appearing on the glass and bubble wand at the back of the tank. Wondering what safe removal I can try? Checking water chemistry tonight, but I think everything's ok since the tank's been cycled for such a long time and is vacuumed and water changed every 2 weeks. Thanks!
