Added more plants, they pretty much fight over nutrients in the water and the plants all ways win

That's great. Mine started when I removed a large amount of java moss. I didn't think much of it to remove it all at once, but then the algae hit. Big mistake.
So now I have put back some java moss, added a Siamese algae eater, extra Jap Amano shrimp, and more Nerite snails. It's only been a couple of days so far but I hope everything works out well for me too. Thanks for sharing. Always good to hear different ideas and experience in the hobby.
