Your tank looks rather new, and also lightly planted. I would say instead of constantly cleaning, vacuuming, using chemicals, ect you should plant more plants, especially ones that are known to grow quickly and easily. If you do this these plants will start to consume all that excess nitrate, and by the same token, reduce your algae problem.
