Flourish Excel got rid of all my algae

Well I finally found a local source of Flourish Excel. I was in the process of adding it into my tank when my little girl ran into me from behind. Needless to say I dumped quite a bit in. At least 5 times the recommended doseage. 2 days later my bba, spot, and green fuzz algae is gone. No sign of it anywhere. I think I like this stuff!

I have a 55 gal. tank with mostly cichlids. Although I feed them small amounts 2x day (i use omega one and hikari) after a couple days my tank has a brownish tint to it. I dont leave the light on more than 6 hrs. daily and it is not near a window. Any suggestions please??
How do you know if you are over-feeding?? Seems like a very thin line between feeding enough and over-feeding. Thanks
