Hey guys hope i can get some help here.

Hey all would post pics but unfortunently just did water change.
About 3 weeks ago i had a hair algae bloom. Past week i have noticed the water getting more and more green.
My tank stats are
2 months old
11 rummynose, 3 rams, 6 danios, 4 corys 1 pleco
yes that seems to be the consensus and has been the case from what i have seen. Is there any suggestions you would make? Not sure about adding any more fish.
I have a 4ft/60gal with 11 rummynose, 4 pepper corys, 3 bolivian rams, 7 danios.
My method btw of building was sift the organic soil heavily so it was fine and no wood chips. Place soil into tank and wet. Mix soil thoroughly but softly to get as much air out. Then gravel on top and thorough prodding to remove air. Then plant tank.

Thanks for the replies everyone the help is much appreciated!
