    Default Brown or red algae?

    Seems my tank is being taken over by a brownish algae that grows on the plants only, the more I clean it the more it seems to spread around the tank and grow faster. It started 2 month ago with only spots on the crypts and it is now on every plants but nowhere else (my guess would be the nerites are too heavy for the plants and don't eat from them).
    I have 2 fluval moss ball for phosphate control already in the tank.

    I am planing on ordering some
    -chemi-pure Elite (for phosphate and silicates control)
    -flourish Excell as a CO2 addition.

    But really, I don't know, here is a picture as you can see makes long brown fringes.
    Please, tell me what you guys think.
