If your ammonia is above 4ppm. Do a water change until the ammonia levels are atleast below 4ppm. Like literally, remove 50% of your tank water and add new water. If there is still ammonia that is too high, remove another 50% and add new. Continue to do this until ammonia levels are down.

Brown slime algea will run its course in a couple monthes or so, will be out-competed by green algea usually.

I vote seachem fluorish as well. It's effective, economical, and seachem has a good reputation. Also, not only the length of light is important, you also need to consider how much, the type of plants, and what spectrum. Some plants will simply die away in low light conditions. Others will love it. All plants need about 6500K spectrum; I like 6700K.
