Welcome to TPT!

Did you cycle the ADA substrate before adding fish? This stuff throws off TONS of ammonia for about the first 4-8 weeks, so you need to get your water tested ASAP.

I suspect that this may be the underlying source of your algae issues.

Also, DIY CO2 may not cut it for a tank this size- VERY difficult to obtain and maintain the consistent levels you need.
