So...

Reduce Feeding (which has already been done, I might even make it every 3 days)
More or larger water changes (partially done, going to attempt a 50% change in the next few days)
Add some floating plants (making a deal on some now)

Sound like a good plan?

The algae growth is bothering me as well, which is what alerted me to a nitrate problem in the first place.
