 hi,  you  have  overstocked  fish  in  your  10  liter  tank.  I  would  not  exceed  4  nos  in  such  a  small  tank.
 
 Secondly  the  light  duration  is  too  much.  We  do  not  know  the  intensity  of  lights  you  are  using.  It  is  ok  to  keep  lights  on  only  after  you  return  home,  may  be  for  3-4  hours  only.  Anubias  and  Java  moss  will  do  fine  even  in  ambient  room  light.
 
 Remove  all  visible  algae  with  toothbrush,  rinse  filter  media  using  tank  water  and  remove  excess  debris  from  HOB  filter,  feed  fish  on  alternate  days  only...
 
 regards,

 Pls  do  check  for  nitrates....  Aim  for  below  20ppm....  Tank  is  over  stocked  and  over  fed...  Alternate  feeding  should  suffice.  Also  reduce  the  photoperiod  to  6-8hrs...  Invest  in  a  good  timer  like  I  did.  Its  a  blessing.

 Due  to  choice  of  words:  for  the  love  of  fish  keeping  please  take  the  advice  that  the  fellow  hobbyist  have  given
 
 1.  Tank  not  fit  to  to  keep  any  fish.  Some  would  recommend  galaxies  or  betta,  but  this  is  not  fair
 
 2.  Good  size  tank  for  nano  scaping;  no  fish  or  inverts
 
 If  you  care  for  the  fish  and  want  to  continue  enjoying  the  hobby,  then  please  upgrade  your  tank  to  a  bigger  size.  For  the  mentioned  live  stock  i  would  recommend  an  18  inch  cube  of  a  2  feet  tank.
 
 If  you  from  bangalore  then  you  can  pick  a  tank  from  me

 water  quality  could  be  a  problem.  temperature  should  be  about  25  degrees,  cover  the  moss  from  light,  lot  of  glare.
