Dosing more but still only once a week?

I did a scheduled water change today and gave it 7 pumps of Micros, as recommended on the bottle. I will continue to add one pump a day till the end of the week, let's see where this is going to bring us.

As expected, the hornwort algae is back. I am not going to dose more micros for this week.
