The only way I that I know of getting rid that kind of algae is to manually remove it or reduce the amount of the light in the tank an hour or 2 less each day until it become more manageable. It shouldn't take long because the plants will start competing again for the nutrients over the algae.
I'll do that. Also, my green killing machine from petco just arrived today and I'll be adding that to the tank aswell. The only problem is the sterilizer is just big. Hopefully the plant won't look bent and all that after I'm done using it.
NPT stands for Natural Planted Tank. It usually means that a fish tank is set up with some type of soil and filled with all sorts of plants. This type of tank requires a little planning because once you set up the tank nothing should be moved or it will make a mess and you will most likely have to start over.
