increase your CO2 as well. and make sure you have strong flow to get it throughout the entire tank.
manually remove as much of the algae as possible to speed things up.

You could try a lower watt light as well if it's difficult to raise it up more. Also, I got a timer with two plugs at home depot for 10$! Lovely tank scape, I hope things get better soon!

Update! New light, but I'm having Spirogyra and BGA problems. I'm beating back the spirogyra, but the BGA is hard. I'm thinking of picking up some Bacter 100 for that. Apologies for the floating masses.

Looks great. Nuke the BGA for sure. I have successfully gotten rid of it without nuking it but it is more time and effort than it's worth. I have yet to try Bacter 100, though I want to, I just pick up some Erythromycin usually. People say deal with the root issue but in my experience, it is rare it comes back, even if nothing else changes.

Sorry, not now. A huge BGA mess, I'll try that solution you tried, or maybe do a trash bag blackout. I've got 3 other tanks I'm working on right now, so kinda preoccupied.
I'm counting the days until AFA gets their shipment in...
