Just run a decently shorter photoperiod for 2 days and you should see a decent reduction if it is in fact algae, does the water feel slippery or gelly-like?

How does under feeding raise the nutrient level? Over-feeding will raise nutirent levels

It means you have excellent conditions for algae to grow, use rodi water to help control the phos if its still there use a different salt, do yoi have a sump? If so add some chaeto or calerpura
