Aquatic Plants Digest V4 #632

Hi, I am real new at this planted tank deal so please bear with me. I have a 
330 gallon tank with 9 discus in the 3-4 inch range and a number of tetras. I 
have this brilliant green algal coating on the bottom front center of my 
tank. It is fast and starting to grow up the leaves of my mini-Amazon sword 
plants. I also have some brown hair alga in some locations. I have checked 
water chemistry, everything is good, great in fact. What am I doing wrong? I 
live in upcountry Maui, Hawaii, and my water is soft, slightly acid, and high 
in silicates. The water supply folks also add Chloramines.  Thanks in advance 
for any suggestions. Sean.
