Your lighting may be a bit on the high side. I'd try lowering your photoperiod to around 8 hours first, though, to see if that helps.

If you think your DIY fixture for the 30gal is still a bit much, you can try raising it a bit higher off the tank. Raising and lowering light fixtures is one of the easiest ways to control light levels.
