I currently have a 10 gallon tank with 26 watts of compact flourescent. It's been about 3 weeks since I've added my hairgrass and HC into the tank. I have a DIY Yeast CO2 system and for the past couple of days I have noticed that my hairgrass has been getting kind of yellow.

I was wondering if I were to start dosing my NPK and Traces, will that reduce the amount of algae I have and revive my hairgrass? I have Eco-Complete as the substrate. I am new, but I am guessing the nutrients from the substrate is now no longer sufficient for the hairgrass. Am I correct?

I have my lights on for 9 hrs per day. Please let me know if you have any suggestions on how I can reduce my algae problem and revive my plants.
