Alright here are my tank specs. This algae is in my 30 gallon tank
The tank is 36x12x17, the light fixture is 2 and 3/4 inches above the tank and 5 inches above the water level that i try to maintain. It is 16 and a half inches from the light fixture to the substrate.
T5HO 4x39w 4x6700K 156watts 5.2watts per gallon probably way to much
Tetra whisper 30EX hang on filter that uses carbon filters.
Substrate is layered with flourite red at the bottom then eco-complete as the middle and then sand at the top.
2-3 bubbles per second of co2,
and as mentioned before no liquid ferts.
Hopefully this will help.

This is what my tank looks like right now.
