I think it would be worth testing for phosphate. My tap water is 5 ppm, so things are much better with rowaphos in the filter.
It is said to be helpful to have a siesta for the lighting - a couple of hours off in the middle of the day - it disrupts the algae's growth without upsetting other plants or fish.
