noticed you don't have any power heads down low or behind the rocks. all that stuff just settles in the tank if it can't get out to the skimmer or filter media. having lots of water movement down low and behind the rocks will give your skimmer a chance at the cleaning it out.

you can cut down on how long the lights are on. that will not fix anything but will slow it down while you get the tank turned around and dialed in.

that HOB might be useful to help clean up the water but you will have to keep the filter pads clean(rinse with tank water) and dump the water out often.

take the rocks out and scrub the the algae off if you can. otherwise if you get the water perfect it will just die off and start the problem over.
