I have a brown algae bloom. I know why. It is because I put too much of Flourish Trace in. What can I do to elevate the problem, ie change the water some? I don' want to take any of the plants out and bleach em. It's only on the plants

Clean off as much as you can manually and do a water change. Repeat if necessary. I have brown algae usually whenever I do not have enough lighting on a tank, like less than two watts/gallon or so.

Also Otto's will eat brown algae, you may want to try a couple.
