First question is, how's your tap water (assuming that's wat you use)? Can you check the pH and GH of that and post it?
Next point, if you have an HOB, then you are not getting much, if any, benefit from your DIY CO2 setup. To maximize CO2 in the water, you want a minimal surface agitation.
On the tank pH, I've never used aragonite so let's not worry about that issue yet. Do you have any rocks or driftwood in the tank? Those can impact pH.
Regarding the algae, please identify what type of light and the bulb as well as the hours/day it's on. That will help with recommendations.
Here is the address of a thread that discusses various lighting issues.
You'll need to cut and paste it into a browser I think it will work:
There is also a thread there on setting up a CO2 system.
I'm certain there are multiple threads on TFK here tht also will help address your issues.
