Just wandered if anyone knows why im getting air algea?

the tank ismoderately planted, I dose co2 with an up atomiser, the drop checker is lime green and I use aquarium plant foods fert mix. I seem to be getting hair algea on the plants that are in direct line of all the areas of water flow. Any ideas would be very helpful

Very simple really.

Plants get co2 through the leaves, too fast flow and no time for the plants to get co2.

Move the outlet to other side, or trim the plants in front of it.

That is my theory. Used to have the same issue.
