I had very bad green algae a month ago with my old tank setup.
Since then I have completely changed my substrate to fluorite and gave my whole tank and everything else a deep cleaning with a blade scraper and steamed the rocks I had in my tank.
Only thing I did not change was the water, only about 75% of it got changed.
Now I have added many plants about 3 weeks ago and now I have the green algae growing all over everything again... It grows more each day.
I got to Oto cats and they don't do a noticeable difference.
What else will eat green slime algae or what can I do to get rid of the slime algae?????
My MT-snails aren't doing SH** either...
I also have spot of this algae on the substrate in random place about a inch or so in diameter..

Don't let the image fool you, the Oto did not eat the part you think it might have.

I'm going to start dosing my tank today.
I thought I was not suppose to have nutrients in the water so the algae can not grow, that's why I have the plants I do is to suck up all the nutrients and leave none for the algae.

If I drop my lighting , some of my plants might not do to well. I think since I have my tank 1 foot away from the window that might be some of the problem? Maybe I should block the sun from the side of the tank that it receive sunlight?

Yes that is a Badis fish
