Default Algae on C. Parva

I've been battling algae on my c. parva for months and cant win. Is parva just more susceptible to algae then other foreground plants?

Is there a good way of trimming? Or should I be trimming at all?

The only other algae in the tank is on a a small part of the wood.

-Fluval Ebi w/ shrimp stratum
-2 x 13w Fluval CF lights on for about 8 hours a day
-Eheim Ecco 2232
-Pressurized co2, drop checker is light green, almost yellow anywhere I put it in the tank
-Ferts - this is probably where I am lacking. I own the entire Seachem line, but never came up with a good dosing schedule...
