Thank you for taking the time to reply. The recent hair algae outbreak was because i recently replenished the root tabs in the entire tank. Overall, it's only on a few tips of the sword leaves, in general the leaves are clean and should not be obstructed from receiving light. From my understanding NilocG root tabs are some of the best out there, if you see a deficiency in them regarding supplements that Swords need please let me know. Prior to the replenishment of root tabs I was not dosing liquid ferts because my understanding was that crypts and swords hardly take much from the water column. That being said, I significantly increased by plant load by adding floaters, hornwort, and H.Diff. to take up the nutrients in the water column. Once algae under control I will dose the water column with the seachem line recommended schedule. I have also indeed done several water changes at this point, there is still a small level of hair algae there but no new growth that im noticing.
