The reason why you have algae infested leaves is because you starve the plants. Weak plants get attacked by algae because they don't have enough energy to fight it. As for your infested leaves, they are lost. You can only wait for new leaves to grow before you remove the bad ones. You need to feed your plants with good fertilizer.

The most common mistake people do is aquascaping before reading Fertilizing and Algae forums.

Even with the nice carpet the aquarium stand is sitting on. Seriously, substrate has nothing to do with it. Plain river sand will do the same job.
