Algae or Fungus?

50L tank
7.2 PH
0 amonia / nitrites
idk nitrate / phospate levels, i'm buying kits this week
light: around 35Lumens/L
NO CO2 injection
Dosing all flourish products using their Dosing Chart
going 3-4X dose size on Flourish EXCEL daily (since no CO2 injection)
30C (temporary, will lower to 26 in 2 weeks)

What algae is this? Excel got rid of all other algae but this one, it's on whole tank (seems to be on plants only), i'm thinking on try H202 now, any ideas? pls help!

Try the H2O2. It's good that you are overdosing Excel daily, I think its an algae. Maybe the beginning of staghorn. Reduce your lights and increase your water changes / filter cleanings.

Trim and throw away really badly infected plant tissue.

If it were easy we wouldn't be here
