    how long have you been putting it on?I would put more lighting if you can that will help too.how long has the macro been in there...cause the more nutients you have in your water the more the algea will grow..they need nutrients to grow...do you have a big bioload in your tank?

    Mine grows like crazy because of nitrates and i have a 150W bulb over it (twirl energy saver type). You should try to get more lighting over it.

    mine grows fast too.
    i got 96W on it (on probably close to 20 hrs/day on avg - light shuts when temp or pH rise too high which is generally during the time that my main lights are on)
