While I'm no expert someone is going to ask:

1. How long is your photoperiod now ? You said it was 10 hours so have you modified it?
2. Are you currently using any type of co2 or liquid carbon?
3. How high are your lights from the surface?
4. How often are you dosing ferts? Are you just dosing liquid or are your root based plants also getting root supplements?

From what I'm reading so far my gut is telling me over-ferting and not enough co2 for the amount of light in the tank.
