Default What am I doing wrong? EI Dosing

Ok Ive been EI dosing dry ferts for about 2 months now in my 60F and Im just not getting the results I want. I keep getting huge breakouts of hair algae that just consumes everything. Three weeks ago I took everything out and removed all the algae, everything was spotless. It came back a week later full force. I also have to scrub what looks like green dust algae off the hardscape every week. What's going on? I have ample CO2, I overdose the tank because there's no livestock. Lighting is provided by a Finnex Ray II Dual 7000K 10 inches above the water level for 6 hours a day.
My EI regime is as follows:
Wednesday: 1/8tsp KNO3, 1/16tsp KH2PO4
Thursday: 1/16tsp CSM+B
Friday: 1/8tsp KNO3, 1/16tsp KH2PO4
Saturday:1/16tsp CSM+B
Sunday:1/8tsp KNO3, 1/16tsp KH2PO4
Monday:1/16tsp CSM+B
Tuesday: Rest
