Question White Algae on the glass ?

Hey guys,

I'm pretty noob and I need some help !

Can you pls help me to identify this thing on my glass ?

In case it can help you, my setup is the following :
- 37.5L tank
- Age : 2 months
- Light : Chihiros A-Serie 9000K 33W set at 60% max power
- Filter : a random intern filter set at its lower flow rate (only Pouzzolane https://imgur.com/a/tsmvDrn)
- Gravel : Sable de Loire
- Substrate : Tropica Plant Growth Substrate
- Light is on from 12am to 10pm (not exposed to the Sun)
- Water change : 30% per week (tap water)
- 1 Catappa Leaf
- No CO2
- Population : 1 Betta, 1 Neritina
- Plants : Limnophila Sessiflora, Anubia Nana, Java Moss, Sagittaria Subulata, Hygrophila Siamensis 53B, Hygrophila Polysperma Sunset, Echinodorus Grisebachii Bleherae, Egeria Densa
- Ferts : 2.5 mL of Easy Life Profita per week

My current water parameters are (not accurate, JBL paper tests) :
- Temp : 26°c
- pH : 6.8 - 7
- NO3 : 25 mg/L (a bit high these days..)
- NO2 : 0 mg/L
- KH : 10
- GH : 14

What's wrong ? How to prevent this ?

Help me to get better
