I pick up a Gold Nugget Pleco this morning while talking to my "friend" a light bulb popped on... The part of my tank that seem to be getting algae hangs a little past the wall and usually has natural light on hence the green algae is only on that spot...

Totally, I got green thread algae in the spring where the sun hit my tank in the morning, but went away when the sun didn't shine in for such a prolonged time.

Really simplified, Excel is just liquid carbon. It contains no micro or macro nutrients. You've already seen this, but vals are very sensitive to Excel. Overdosing it will melt them. I've also heard the same thing about anacharis, so cutting back was a good idea. You don't seem to be dosing micros at all, other than iron plus the root tabs.

Flourish comprehensive contains most of the micros needed, for simplicity's sake
