I had good success with Tropica Master-Gro. It isn't sold in the United
States as far as I know, but you can order it from Big Al's
and they ship it to the U.S.
I was running 220W over a 75G and I ran into problems with a nitrogen
shortage fairly quickly. The algae came. Soon after adding nitrate and
phosphates the algae left.
You didn't say what level of CO2 you have in the tank.
