Lighting and algae question

Another lighting/algae question - I know, should read the FAQ - I have a
hundred times.  My 90 gallon has the (typical) stringy, green algae.  I
have three 40 watt bulbs: one triton, two plant bulbs - they are on for 11

change to 20%.  What is the best combination for the problem interms of
lighting time and amount.  I fertilize with Sea Chem Plant Fertilizer -

surface scum questions and the responses had made a huge difference -
