[APD] Help fighting Hair Algae

Hi! All,

My fight with Hair Alage still continues. Still the hair algae is
flourishing at full glory. In fact this is creating problems for the growth
of my plants. Am completely at loss as to what more should I do to stop this
growth. From your experience, can anyone tell me as to how much time does it
generally take to root out the Hair Algae issue. Currently I am doing 50%
weekly w/c, dosing nitrate so as to maintain a level between 5 ppm to 10
ppm, pressurised CO2 is also being injected so as to maintain 50 PPM level,
addition of micro nutrients without Iron on a weekly basis, lights @ 108
watts of PLL (2 nos. 6500K & 1 no. 4000K) @ 12 hrs per day, Phosphate level
is about 0.5 ppm. Tempretaure of the tank is about 25 degree C. I have two
medium size Orandas in my tank who are feed on commercial pellets once a day
(not too much feeding).

What else can I do to win my battle against the Hair Algae?
