I'd stuff this tank with some fast-growing stems to suck up the excess nutrients till your "keeper" plants have time to fill in.

Algae outbreaks are pretty much par for the course with new tank setups.

The key is to establish stability- which so far sounds like is the OPPOSITE of what's been going on with your tank.

You may also be overfeeding. Try feeding only every other day and see if that helps slow down the algae.

Do you have any scavengers besides the Amanos?

What's your photoperiod?
