Make it stop!!!

Planted aquarium FAIL.
Since the last update I have continued to have algae problems. If I am able to clear up 1 type, then another type of algae takes over and round and round we have gone.

Here are some samples of my lovely algae. My tank is sooo purdy.

Good news? Well... at least my plants are still fairly healthy and the fish are all very healthy. So on to plan B. CO2 injection.
Tonight I rigged up a DIY CO2 bottle with a 2L pop bottle, and tubing. My plan is to have a 2 bottle rotation so that CO2 flow stays somewhat steady. If this makes a world of difference I may have to turn my back on low tech and pony up for a high pressure CO2 injection system.
