I hope you did not add NH3 and do the fishless cycling.
Since you already did(you have a NO2 reading without any fish+ some
plants), Remove all the algae you can, do a prune(remove old dead infected
leaves), do a large, 80% water change and then another a day later.
That should remove everything.
The plants need nutrients as well, not just Nitrogen, you will need add
some nutrients for them to grow well.
