Blue-green slime algae/cyanobacteria.

Hey all
I read somewhere about a type of algae that forms like a slime layer on surfaces... its supposedly cyanobacteria rather than algae...
my question is, what kind of conditions promote its growth? ie what imbalances in nutrients, light, CO2, etc would lead to more of this slime than say hair algae or brown algae?
and what can be done to get rid of it (ie fix the imbalance)
