The photoperiod on the tank is set to 6 hours, with the co2 turning on an hour before the lights come on. I dose N and K only using Pfertz no P or Micros. I havent dosed any excel so far. Everytime I dose either P or Micros the algae starts growing exponentially.
BGA showed up 2 weeks ago.. this was expected because the damn timer wouldnt turn the co2 on correctly, it took me a couple of days to fix it.
I have some green thread algae (looks similar to spirogyra) also have some fuzz algae showing up now.
I did some spot treatments with excel and that seems to have kept the algae under control, Do you recommend just dosing the tank directly everytime ? or should I keep doing spot treatments ?
Also when do you recommend dosing excel, should I dose at night ? when the co2 has been turned off ? or should I be dosing when the co2 is on ? .. I just dont want a scenario where there is too little oxygen in the water because of co2 and excel.

About 1.5 months ago I was having some pretty major algae issues in my Mini S, but after adding more plant mass and dosing excel steadily it had subsided.

Yes the tank is filled, but it is not iwagumi anymore. I ended up taking out the HC to use in my 60-P, So here is how it looked a month ago.... I took the heater and filter out and replaced it with a canister and inline heater, So it looks much cleaner now.
Some more recent pictures
I am still fighting some algae that was introduced when the CO2 ran out. I am slowly getting it back under control.
