It all boils down to basics. Do you start an aquarium with all the lights on full blast? No. Why? You already found out

Lights need to be reduced until you get some plant mass going. Reducing might also be done by keeping the lights on less time than you do now.

Ferts are a limiting factor to plant growth, if they have plenty than you tune your lights and CO2 until you get everything going.
