Default black brush algae...... cant get it to go away

Did a rescape about 3 weeks ago and plants took off. Now BBA is starting to tighten its grip

Parameters: (as of this morning, 1 week since last 50%WC)
0 Ammonia, 0 Nititrs, 10pmm nitrates
WC 50% every 2 weeks.
CO2 has been spotty due to not having a filled tank and Reg issues, but back up and running as of now.
Lighting. 3x39 t5HO Glo lights.

Timing: 2x39 on for 6.5 hours 1x39 plus co2 on for 5.5 hours

Ferts 2x week EI dosing (i need to get better about this, but life happens)

Anyone see anything to really change? I know my co2 has been a bit of an issue that I am still trying to iron out, but I got levels too high the last few days as fish were gasping for air. I also run 2 small airstones into the tank for O2
