slimy green algae

<<<The lighting consist of 4 Mercury Vapour lamps 125W each. In addition I
use a 150W metal halide 4400K lamp. The temperature of the water is 26-27.
The setup is not close to a window.>>>
Okay, I dont know much about plant tanks yet, but a 200 liter tank is what,
50 gallons?
So that is 4 X 125w = 500w + 150w = 650w of light for 50 gallons. Well, I
dont think you need it near a window. I think you have sunshine right there
in your living room with over 11 watts per gallon. Do you need sunglasses to
look into the tank?
