Fluval Plant Spectrum LED

I have a Fluval Plant Spectrum Bluetooth LED 46W but am having a real problem with green slime algae all over the gravel, rocks and wood. There also seems to be green string algae starting. All the water levels are good for Ammonia, PH, GH, KH and Phosphates. I do 25% water changes every week.

I have looked at the default Plant settings and reduced them by 25%:

Red - 84 %
Blue - 20 %
Purple - 73 %
White - 100 %
Orange - 80 %

Can anybody recommend any adjustments to reduce or hopefully stop my algae problems without affecting plant growth?

Thanks

I quoted the wrong figures. These are the 100 % figures. I have reduced them by 20 % to:

Red - 67 %
Blue - 16 %
Purple - 58 %
White - 80 %
Orange - 64 %
