I think it will be easier for you to manual extract and starve off the algae now, while your tank is new rather than later..

In my opinion, you should leave your lights off. You're still cycling your tank and any lost coralline due to shutting off your lights can be added/re-seeded later on. I would rather have a tank that is delayed by a month in coralline growth or that requires coraline to be re-seeded than a tank riddled with caulerpa and hair algae.

Also, check your source water for phosphates.
