Green spot

I have green spot algae on glass , nana leaves and and on some other leaves too...

I research this link (http://gwapa.org/wordpress/articles/algae-in-the-planted-aquarium/#greenspot) feel like very complicated... I didnt have any test kit. my tank is 29GL, 5 GL water change /week. I have CO2 injection (about 1 buble / min) and 65W for 10 hours....
I add some Excel but it dont kill green spot algae...
Where can i find phosphate?
Thanks...

Here is tank pick

If you're going to dose phosphates, you'll need to get on a full NPK + trace regime with that much light.

You'll also want to check your CO2 level, as I think you might be a bit low at that rate (by the way, I assume you meant 1 bubble per second, not per minute).

I think the RCS should take care of the algae except on the tank walls? Not sure.

A Mag-Float would work for the walls.
