In order to give you some specific advice on your setup, you should include a little more information. What is the tank dimensions, what kind of light, that sort of thing.
Does the aquarium get any sunlight? I had serious brown algae when I had a 10g in a window.
The main thing here is to get some more light. Otherwise, stem plants are only going to disintegrate in your tank. Minimum for you should be around 90W of flouro light, IMO.
