1) Even despite the slight inefficiency of T8 bulbs, that's still quite a bit of light over your tank. Probably in the arena of ~100 watts, or 2.WPG.
2) You don't need the heated cable.
3) Do you have a link to your CO2 unit?
4) Put some water in a white cup. Is there a hint of green, or is it still white? If there is even a hint of green, you have green water. If it's all white, it's probably a bacterial bloom.
5) Drop the lighting to 8 hours a day.
6) Brown algae was probably diatoms which are normal for a new tank.
7) The green algae now is due to too much lighting, not enough CO2, no fertilizers.
8) You probably didn't have to throw away all those plants. Some fertilizers, CO2, and algae eaters would've fixed the problem.
9) You need to aim the outflow of your filter return at the surface or get a powerhead and aim it at the surface. It's just surface film and will disappear if you get some surface agitation going.
