From what I've read, there must be a balance between all elements of your aquatic environment - enough light, nutrients for that level of light, and on... If you can clear up the problem creating the algae, the plant will grow better and out-perform the algae, which will go away. Check out the aquariumalgae.blogspot.com.

I wish I had found this before I started the tank! There's some very helpful info in that! I learned a few things. So thanks again! I think I'm getting close to a balanced tank....just not quite there yet
