I had that issue when I carpeted DHG. I have had good luck with the s repens i'm starting to carpet now. But I also cranked up my co2, got my EI dosing in check, and make sure i'm doing weekly 50% water changes. That in part with the 9 nerite snails in my tank has made any algae I had disappear.

It is always worth spending for a pressurized co2, even on a nano tank (=
An atomic v2 reg would be great for a nano. I have used one on my 20 gallon tanks and even on my 40 gallon breeder.
