Experimenting in an aqueon frameless 6

I've been keeping a journal of this tank, but it gets lost in all the amazing full size aquaria in that section. Thought I might get more feedback/advice from the nano community. Struggling with some green hair algae and green algae on the glass. If anyone sees anything in the following that I might adjust to get things right let me know.

Tank: Aqueon frameless 6
Filter: Finnex PX-360 - I've got this very restricted on the outflow
Heater: nope
Light: I run this light from Amazon (https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/...?ie=UTF8&psc=1) 16" from the surface of the tank right now.
I've been running 6 hours of light and still getting algae. This week I decided to turn it up to 10hours per day.
Pressurized CO2 - on 2hrs before lights, off 2 hours before lights out. 1 degree ph drop measured on a calibrated Milwaukee digital setup
NilocG thrive+ Currently 1ml after each water change
I change 2 gallons every other day so adding the following from Rotala Butterfly calculator

Element ppm/degree
NO3 5.8334
Po4 1.0833
K 4.1667
N 1.4089
P 0.3522
Fe 0.3346
Mg 0.0264
Cu 0.004
B 0.0881
Co 0.0001
Mn 0.0308
Mo 0.0009
Zn 0.007

Stock: 5 neons, 2 otos, a pile of RCS and their babies, 2 amanos
Hygrophila serpyllum
Clinopodium brownei
Blyxa Japonica
Christmas moss
Crypt wendtii - brown and green gecko
Crypt lucens
Alternanthera reineckii
Potomogeton gayi
Hygrophila pinnatifida

Before a massive trim and rescape

Trim and some plant movement I made this week. Needs to grow back in, but I think it'll be a better layout.
