Sounding good. Once the balance between light and nutrients is achieved, brush algae will not increase.

Don't expect what is already there to disappear, it won't on its own. The goal is to not have it increasing. Algae is natural in any fish tank; it is impossible to have a healthy aquarium without algae. But when we have live plants, we aim to keep algae under control, then we're fine.
