Thank you for the tips! It is the factory 7k Fluval LED light setup. I will reduce my time the lights are on for sure. I think the lights are known to be low to medium in intensity. I did remove the carbon today and did throw in some Purigen. I also added some more plants today to absorb any nutrients the algae may use. Currently there are 4 species of beginner-type common plants and a moss ball. Fish-wise, there are 2 rasboras, 2 tetras, 1 bristlenose pleco, and 2 amano shrimp. My tap water is unknown but I do know it is slightly on the harder side.
I will run my tests later today or tomorrow.
