That all seems fine - since you have run out of ammonia strips I'd swap across to a solution / vial test kit (eg API freshwater master test kit) as the liquid test kits are more accurate than strips. I find the strips can under read. My loaches are in similar readings.

Lights for 6 hours(?) sounds fine. Normally algae shouldn't be this bad - does the tank get a lot of natural sunlight? It sounds like solve the algae and this will help the loach if that makes sense?

Hi Thanks I will try the liquid test. This is my tank it looks great now no brown algae but after about 6-7days it gets brown everywhere. Forgive the blue background that's how it was & it's painted on
