I would get the nitrates to between 5-10 ppm and phosphates to 1-2 ppm. The oto's will take care of the brown algae. Again the algae around the hairgrass looks like blue green algae which needs a good flow at the front bottom of the tank.

When you get the otos watch how fast the tank will clear up.
