[APD] Nutrients and Algae types

Hey folks,
I finally have started dosing in reasonably accurate amounts and my plants 
are showing the results.  However, the overall algae type seems to have 
changed.  Whereas before I had an abundance of hair and staghorn algae on the 
plants and glass, most of it now only consists of green spot algae on the 
glass.  Is there a relation to the types of algae and your nutrient balance?
For example, too much or little iron will generally cause a certain type of 
algae to flourish while inhibiting another, while too much or little NO3 will 
favor another?  Thanks!
