You should also say whether the CFLs are vertical or horizontal, what the reflector is and if they are raised off the tank and how much.

I have a 10g with 2 10W CFLs which are raised about 1/2 foot. May be raised a little too much but my algae seems to be dying. The CFLs are in dome Brooder reflectors - very efficient I think.

The first thing I would think of about algae growth would be excess light. After that, keeping the plants growing well.
