The issue with juwel tanks is the intensity, I love their equipment, nearly every tank I've had has been a juwel as the quality is unparalleled, but the stock lighting is just over kill and always causes issues with algae in planted setups without injected CO2. On all my juwel tanks I block out one of the tubes with a reflector mounted upside down, seems a waste but the LED lights on these tanks use little power anyway. This will more than likely cure your algae problems long term.

Your tanks coming along great.The hygrophila is a very fast growing plant,just watch how much you trim off of it as taking too much off can shock it and stall its growth rate.
Pentazona barbs are a great fish to have in a tank,very strong fish (health wise).I’ve never had any problems with mine in two years.
