i believe the real turn around plant for me was dwarf sagittaria. put in a few bunches of those and everything started going right. i have some anacharis, micro sword, anubias wrinkle leaf, anubias minima, anubias petite, wenditi, some kind of tear plant and at the end water sprite. all the other plants helped only slightly as i added then in at diff points.
so i think my main ones are dwarf sagi, anacharis and maybe micro sword. put in as much of the first 2 as you can if you are getting alot of algae. adjust light and water changes.
