Algae from EI method?

I have a few questions about the type of algae I am getting. There are a few images of the algae and I'm wondering what kind it is and how to really get rid of it. I use the EI method of dosing, and I have 3 L of CO2 which my plants are pearling, but maybe the venturi is not strong enough... it is a venturi from the Red Sea CO2 kit. What size and brand would someone recommend for a 20 gallon tank and 3 L of CO2? Also, the little bubbles take a while to get to the top of the tank, but some still rise pretty quick. When you have a venturi, is this right? or is there something else you do?

The light is around 7 hours 65 watts... Just let me know what I can do... thanks everyone!
