Way over simplified but algae growth is really due to too much light for the conditions going on in your tank. Micros are only one, dare I say small, part of that. :)

Sure, it could easily be the reason but really it would be better to know the other parameters of your tank? (Co2 use & levels, Ca & Mg, light intensity and duration, tank maintenance, not to mention plant concentration).

My experience is that you turn the light duration (maybe intensity as well but hard to gauge when it's not known) down. Sometimes way down. Then dail in your water parameters and tank maintenance.
