Are you adding CO2? If not I would highly recommend investigating this.

I too changed my 90g tank from a fish only tank to a planted tank and had trouble growing plants. Some would grow ok but the algae definitely had the upper hand.

When I switched to pressurized CO2 the plants really took off. I also removed many of the plants with the most algae. You can also "spot" treat infected plants with Flourish Excel which can kill BBA.

Look through some of the older posts on this site--there is a ton of great information--and many people have encountered the same problems.

Good luck!
