Walstad tank

Introduction

Hey guys, does anyone know what I should do with the algae ? This is my 2nd try at a Walstad tank, so I don't really know what I am doing. Some things I read say increase the light so that plants outcompete the algae, some things say dicrease. I am confused! LOL My lights are on for 5, off for 4 and on for 5 hours. Thanks in advance!

PS. Sorry for posting and re-posting this comment. I am new here and between the app and the website still learning how to navigate.
