Hey all, first time post. Any ideas for other plants I can/should put in here to control algae? Also, the driftwood in the middle keeps getting scuzzy with biofilm, green and brown algae. Thinking of replacing it with stone. Any pointers?

Setup:
Livestock:
2 whisker shrimp
1 zebra Nerite
2 guppies

Plants:
Java fern (back left of tank)
1 Anubis
1 retrocrypto sprialis
1 [can’t remember, right side of tank]

Issues with brown (diatom) algae, I’ve used hydrogen peroxide dip for plants to control. Water parameters are decent, pH just below 7.

Thanks for the advice! Tank was set up in august. Not looking to add more livestock to the bio load. Oto’s and Amanos would probably be torn to pieces by the whisker shrimp; they’re pretty aggressive. Really looking to see if there are any other plants I could/should add. I do a 40% water change and vacuum the gravel once a week.
