10 Gallon Tank I can't control the algae in my hairgrass

Mark2621

See attached photos.

Tank has German Blue Ram
Temp 81 degrees
PPS-Pro dosing 2 ML macros, 1 ml micros per day
Lights on 9-hours
Co2 turns on/off two hours before lights, drop checker always green

How can I stop this algae? It's so hard to remove from hairgrass.

Thank you. I'm going to try this. Am I dosing too many fertz? Is 9 hours of light OK?

That looks OK, I use PPS-Pro also...and 9 hours is fine. Plants require Ferts, CO2, and light. Light (or light intensity) should be the limited factor in the triangle.
