Now I really feel like a idiot... My plants are looking fine so far.. I guess that's why I'm posting here.. I will get this figured out and balanced.

I'm going to go back to 8 hours of straight light today. I'm continuing my EI dosing and water changes..

I'll continue the Excel at double the rate(14ml) until this gone.

I will let you know how it it works out.

Thanks for you input and help..

No, do not continue dosing. Red is good and red is dead. However now comes the hard part of dealing with the water/light/fert parameters in order to destroy the algae building blocks... this is the hard part. I would hold on to my dosing material because algae fights are usually long drawn out wars with multiple battles. I wish you luck sir.
