Planted tank issue please anything I can try

Having a huge planted issue all this beard algae I think and my plants keep curling up and I have no idea what to do I do lots of water changed and I change my filters regularly and vacuum the bottom and the whole nine. I even throw in co2 booster every day as directed on the bottle but nothing gets rid of this algae I’ve tried peroxide and clipping all the leaves and starting over I have more pictures but it’s everywhere it grows on all my decorations and even on my snails shells

Hi Schonewolf2,

Welcome to TPT!

What it appears to be is too much light, not enough plants, and insufficient nutrients. What tank size, light model, photoperiod? Are you dosing any fertilizer besides carbon supplement?
