I'm currently cycling my 10 gallon and in it are a small amount of plants. Some Crypts, Dwarf Sag, and some sort of Rotala. Earlier this week everything was fine, but then I noticed some algae that looked sort of like BBA, but it was green. This was mostly on the crypt leaves. I also have some thread algae which is pretty much on everything. What does the two types of algae thrive on? Besides removing what I can manually, what else should I do?

It would help to get a big bunch of something like Hygrophila Difformis or another fast growing stem plant and load up the tank with it. How much light do you have? How are you fertilizing?

I have a 40 watts over it, but it is a 50/50 bulb so only 20 watts. I was out of Potassium so I didn't dose that, but I dosed like 1 ppm of phosphate. I have DIY Co2 and also Aquasoil.
