Hey,

As far as you plant list goes its pretty good...you are right they are hardier plants.....but an algae problem isnt due to the plants...its due to an imbalance some where in your system, whether it be light, CO2, or ferts. I would definately get more fast growing stem plants in there. I would double or triple that hygro, add some Ludwigia repens, rotala indica, etc...The more fast growing stem plants you can pack in there the better. As far as dosing goes your set up is a little bit over 3 watts per gallon so I would go with the EI method. Good luck and post pics....I would love to see how a 75 looks with T5s on it....been thinking about that for a while now...
