Somethings not balanced.

New tank, BML 10000k Light ~18" above the substrate, dosing EI seachem products (for now). Nitrogen, Iron, Trace, Potassium & Excel. I'm getting BGA on the sand, wood and rocks in the front of the tank, as well as green spot algae on some parts of the glass. I've been tweaking the tank for weeks trying to get it to stop but can't seem to do it.

CO2 3bps, photoperiod 6hrs. I didn't start seeing the BGA until i started adding nitrogen/Iron last week.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
