Co2, all you have to do is check the pH/KH chart for CO2.

You are way way low on CO2 and all the algae species show me that and confirm it also.

Nutrients are not the issue, light(too high for such low CO2) and mostly CO2.
If you fix the CO2 correctly, then the algae will stop any new growth.

Fish should always be observed closely when adjusting the cO2. Do ti s........l.........o............w...........l..... ......y

Do not adjust and then leave for work all day.

pH should be more about 6.7-6.8 range.
