I would fill your fuge with chaetomorpha,drop the lighting time in your DT and run a small Metal halide over your macro algae when the dt light is off,within a month you will see a massive difference,once sorted change your lighting times around.

mangroove plants are a waste of time and energy. They grow to slow and you would need at least 12 for a tank of your size. Old lights might be part of your problem as well as your die off of macroalgae.
