Reducing your load helps, because you've reduced the amount of
excess nutrients for the algae.   

The other method would be to improve plant growth conditions, so
that the plants use those nutrients before the algae can.

Using peroxide or any other additive to clear algae isn't going to
be an effective long-term solution.  If you have excess nutrients,
some algae will grow to use those nutrients.
