So just as the title says I'm having an algea problem. Description of my tank is as follows:

Size: 45g

Lighting: 36inch Planted+ 24/7 running full brightness back of tank and 24inch Satellite plus pro on the front of tank. Light to substrate is 20-21 inches. Lights are on 8 hours

Filtration: Marineland canister C-360; also 1 Hydor Koralia nano 425gph powerhead

Substrate: Caribsea Floramax

Co2: drop checker in the green; used with inline reactor

Fish: 2 angels; 2 swordtail; 2 mollies; 3 danios; 10 neon tetra; 3-5 nerites; 5-8 amanos

Plants: I will post the picture I can't remember everything I have

Ferts: API root tabs and EI dosing for 40-60g. Also 10mL Flourish excel every time with micros.

Also 50% WC every week.

So that's that. I recently rescaled and put in a bunch of plants. My initial thought was too much light but no sure. Also not sure what type of algea is growing. Attached pics below. Any help is appreciated!

Yep, too much light, plus you have heavy waste producers in there. So when you started the tank what was in there plant wise? Did you run lights for a full light cycle?
Well, I've switched my plants quite a bit in the last 6 months, never being happy....lol...what do you mean when you say full light cycle?
