How to kill algae?

I had a major problem with red Dictyota. The only way I could deal with it was to replace all my live rock. It was a nightmare, but I did it. My old rock and most of my coral is in another tank and I'd like to move it back into the main tank. My question is - is there anything I can do to make sure that there is no algae on the coral I am moving back into the main tank? Is there a dip I can use that will kill the algae and not the coral? Is there anything I can put on the algae to kill it? Any other suggestions?The coral is all softies - zoas, shrooms, leather.
