Lights have also been cut in half from 4 x 54W t5ho to 2 x 54W. The plants are now growing well and algae is disappearing.

I also added my plecos back into the tank a few days ago and they helped tremendously as far as keeping the glass and wood clean.
I keep getting staghorn on some of my plants. Glut? Glutamine?
