Kessil Lights A360X problem

Hello,

We bought 2 kessil A360X Tuna Sun when starting our 75 gallons aquarium in April 2020. Since then we have been struggling with the schedule and intensity of the lights without any real success yet. Problems with plant growth and algae. If we increase the intensity we get algae on the carpet and also on the leaves if we decrease we have problem with growth and plants loosing their bottom leaves.

Water parameters are: PH 6.41 to 6.60, GH 4, KH 3, Nitrate 7, Phosphate 1, Iron .25.

We are injecting CO2 starting 2 hours before lights comes on and it's pretty constant at 35 till the lights turned off. We add Fertilizer (GLA) Macro 3.8 ml daily and Micro 7.6 daily 1 hour before light comes on.

The schedule of the lights is from 10 am to 8 pm with a varying intensity of 15 to 45 percent. The lights were at 8" above water level and recently put them back at 13" as original set up.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thank you in advance.

Perhaps shorten duration, up intensity a little bit? I tend to stick to +-6 - 6.5 hours of light, with short ramp up/down so its easier to control variables.
