I would not start over. I have not followed your previous posts intensely,
but I am sure Tom B. could give some good advice where to go with things.
Maybe a UV sterilizer would cut some of that algae down? I am not sure there
but again Tom would know. Maybe a real detailed rundown of everything in
your tank, like water parameters, lighting, etc. I would bet someone can
help. Sounds like you must be doing something right with good growth in some
plants. Hang in there.
