Oh! Forgot to mention I've got T5HO bulbs. The tank photo was taken today and there are no powerheads in the tank. The lights are on for 8 hours a day i have them set on a timer. Could the algae be due to a lack of water flow the plant's leaves don't sway in the water.
In the tank i've got
4 Red cherry shrimp
4 Amano shrimp
infestation of pond snails
2 Spotted cory - Corydoras ambiacus
5 Neon tetras
2 Otocinclus
