    Your plants need some food, gabcas! The Bacopa looks like it needs iron desperately. I am almost certain that you have a deficiency. Giving your plants everything they need to grow is the first step in algae control.

    Use commercial liquid fertilizers like Seachem if available where you are. And then do large water changes regularly. Don't worry about water getting toxic.
