waterfaller1 If the bulbs are T-5's I might be thinking of replacing them in the next few months.
10 hours is a bit much if there are algae issues, even without... I cut back to 6.5-7, and nearly all my algae problems are gone.
NO3 is being taken up by the algae present, giving you a 0 reading, most likely.Are you using a titration test kit?{drops} or test strips? The latter is really unreliable.
I do 50% on my 90 every week. Goldfish are messy.
The filter seems a bit inadequate. What size tank is this? Goldies should have 10X gph. Perhaps a second filter might need to be added?{ETA:I see a 55 gal....yes, you should have at least 550 GPH} Unless it is a nice big canister or more efficient filtering system, then you can get away with slightly less.
If there is a filter pad{s}, at least shake it clean in your change water as you do water changes.

Some questions to troubleshoot the GHA that come to mind~
How old are your bulbs?
Do you run them on a timer?
How many hours?
Do you know your readings for NO3, GH, KH, etc?
Are you dosing anything?
How often, and how big of a water change are you doing?
What type & size is the filter, and how long has it been since you cleaned the media?
Thanks for your help!
The bulbs are 7 months old.
They are on a timer.
10 hours per day.
NO3 is 0ppm, don't know about GH and KH.
Not dosing anything.
20% water change per week.
Filter is a HOB, 264 gph.
I don't remember the last time I cleaned the media, maybe a month?

Thanks! The red fantail was from a "feeder" tank in a mom and pop shop. They knew I was getting it as a pet so they picked out the fantail for me since the rest were commons. The orange lionhead is from another mom and pop shop. The calico and yellow ones are from petsmart.

Looks like the swords, vals, java fern, and rotala is doing well. Unfortunately the dwarf sag appears to have been crushed by the invading vals. The middle vals are kept chewed short by those pesky but adorable goldfish.
