blue green algae outbreak

I have been dealing with an outbreak of blue green algae.My tank is 30 galons. I have tried the black out for 3 days. Most of my plants died, then I got new ones but now they are dying too.... And they are getting covered by that algae. Even the substrate has it. I don't know what to do. Please help me. Thanks.

Dose with erythromycin, there is plenty of info if you Google. Extremely effective to help you get it under control and give your plants a chance...... but it is only temporary - the problem will come back if you don't fix the root cause.
