Microalgae Culture

I live in indonesia, and we have abundant sunlight here. I've been trying to culture microalgae for a while, sometimes it succeed but sometimes they just crash, i used a 15 x 15 x 20 cm jar (approx 1 gal/5 liter),  i used dechlorinated water, and plant fertilizer (consisting 15% N, 15% P, and some micronutrien), i usually use the fertilizer at N-concentration 40 mg/Liter, then i aerated them under direct sunlight, them water temp sometimes reach 32 C.

So, what is wrong with the culture, is it the temp, the N-concentration, or something else ??
