Might kill your shrimp, probably won't kill your fish.

Works better if you spot dose instead and turn off your filters for 15 minutes.

I would definitely recommend increasing the amount of plants you have. Others have already mentioned, lots of light with no CO2 is a huge reason for algae.

My theory without any FTS, you have a ton of light for very little plant biomass and no CO2. Continue with water changes and good tank hygeine but back your light down a bit. Light drives everything,...

I always think that when people say you need good CO2, this also is with the understanding that you have enough plant biomass.

I tore down a tank about 3 months ago and it was a small 8 gallon...

Dude, that is going to be a pain to remove. I say ditch the java moss and buy some new stuff thats clean. Or black your tank out. Shrimp wont like algaefix though that will work as well.

Trimming Ludwigia couldn't be easier. Just cut where you want and replant the tops. They will root in a week or so. The plant is fully capable of living off water column fertilization.
