Easy green fertilizer is not a complete fertilizer. Ithas all plant nutrients except Calcium, copper and nickel. If Ca, Cu, Ni are not in your water, or substrate. IF only one nutrients plants need is missing your plants cannot grow. When that happens the plants stop consuming fertilizer. Algae thrives in these situations.

Now you tank may have originally Ca, Cu, Ni but your plants probably consumed all that was available.

Now there may be other issues with the fertilizer but I have no way of knowing what that may be. But if we assume you tap water has at Ca, Cu, Ni a regular weekly water change would help. Because the water would add what is missing from the fertilizer you add. If it does the plants may outcompete the algae for the nutrients and the algae may die off.

IF he problem is not Ca, Cu, or Ni then the problem will continue to worsen
