Blackout to battle algae questions

ihave a 20 long that is getting massive diatoms / brown algae and brown fuzzy algae.

im thinking of doing a full day blackout tomorrow and was wondering if I should have my CO2 running or shut it off as well?

im thinking of raising my finnex ray 2 lights but ihave to wait on getting my supplies. any other tips to battle this horrendous algae?

Shut off the CO2, as the plants won't really be using it with the lights off, so itll be a waste, and itll probably gas the fauna.
