I've had good luck with string algae & the plants you have.

For the string; the best thing I've found is to wipe it as often as you can. Let it get caught and die in the mechanical filter where there is no light. It only reproduces from other string algae, so make sure you wipe your leaves and everything.

Make sure this is not GDA, because that algae works differently; you'll make the problem worse.

For the polysperma & other hygros; I'm shocked you are having trouble. I have kept them in a 70g tank with only a double bright led, no co2, no ferts... Just NO3 from beef heart & Blackworms.

It's possible the string is covering the hygro's leaves?

What's you ammonia & NO3 levels?
