Green surface algae & DIY CO2

I had a strange Green surface algae, when you put your hand in the tank it 
had a green filter over it.

Im sure it was because of my DIY co2 system, because when I removed it the 
algae went away over night. Only now Im trying to find a cause, off course 
you whould think that yeast is leaking in the tank. Only I dont understand 
how that is possible, there are a few CMs between the yeast and the tube 
(hope that is the right word). I can imagine that from time to time a little 
amount whould leak, but that should only boost the algae for a day. (when 
the DIY CO2 was removed the algae was gone the next day). That wasnt the 
case the algae was getting thicker each day for a few weeks.

I now want to add co2 with a pressured CO2 system but im afraid the algae 
will return.

Btw I had not a real troube with algae inside my tank. Not at that scale 
only some algae on the Lilaeopsis brasiliensis.

Tank stats
60-30-30 54 litre ehhh 12 galons
30 watt
Adding Tropica master grow

Does anyone ever had any experience with this algae or any other info that 
could help me ?
