4x T5 HO is extremely excessive light if it is right on top of the tank for a 40B. Keep 2 of them killed.

Lighting an Aquarium with PAR instead of Watts

How long are your lights on per day? I like to start new tanks on a short photoperiod and slowly work my way up. After Excel'ing out your Algae you might want to try this.
