Algae on glass

I have noticed lately that I am getting significantly more green algae building up on my glass since I started using pressurized co2. Does too much co2 impact green algae? Also I changed bulbs recently from 6700K and 10K to 6700K and Actinic not sure if that may have contributed or not?

thanks.

Having CO2 changes the balance in your tank. Before the plants were carbon limited, now something else might be low.

Until I got brave enough to really dose phosphate my acrylic/glass could get really bad between cleanings. Now any GSA is soft and easy to remove.
