I'm fairly new at this as well, but I've had my fun battling algae and it's finally on the way out. With those two bulbs running on a 10 gallon tank, you pretty much have the sun right above your tank. You currently aren't adding enough CO2 and ferts to help the plants out-compete the algae.

I would shade that light, or lift it up. Window screen works well, or get some floaters. Probably both.
