Planted Tank Obsessed

The plants seemed to have stopped growing and started dying. Even the wisteria seems to be dying. I trimmed a LOT of it a couple of weeks ago, because it was covered in algae. The newer growth is bright green, but its slow compared to what it used to be, barely even noticeable. Also a sheet of BGA over the gravel and some of the plants. Brown and blackish algae all over everything else. : / The leaves are breaking off.
Maybe a cover over the tank to decrease the amount of light thats getting in? I fertilize w. flourish comp once a week but thats it. I can't seem to remember to put the excel in so basically no CO2. Ive been meaning to get snails to aerate the gravel. This thing has kind of been put on hold for awhile. But I'm almost ready to start working on it again.
I'm afraid I'll have to just throw the plants out and start over. I'm not entirely opposed to that since I hate the way this looks anyway, but I'm afraid I'll just have the same problems again. I can't seem to get rid of the BGA or diatoms. :'(
I have gone to a place far below up above and in between the middle.
