Plan on dropping the pH using ONLY CO2 gas 1 .0 pH units, so if it's 7.5 after sitting in the tank without light or CO2 gas being added, you'll want to drop it to about 6.5.

Then adjust very slowly from there.
You will focus on plants, algae is a secondary issue after the plants have no been doing well.
