Normally I wouldn't offer this advice to someone headed to the "dark side" but since you still plan on keeping nanos...dude you need more plants in your tanks! I think that is the major contributor to the algae problems you had/are having.

Your tank appears to be lightly planted. Pack some plants in those nanos and you should be able to avoid most types of algae. If you keep the Anubias for the nano tanks, place them underneath some taller growing plants so they aren't in direct light. this will help avoid algea on them also, especially BBA.

Hopefully you can make it to some meetings in the future. If you need help with the tanks, by all means, let us know!
