If your macroalgae is lingering, it's probably missing one key trace
nutrient in adequate quantity. I would hazard a quasi-educated guess that
it's an iron deficiency. What could correct this in an aquarium? I'm not
exactly sure, but for our greenhouse plants we found a fertilizer called
Iron Green that was like a magic bullet, containing 6% available iron. Maybe
a small addition of such a fertilizer could help...
