Orange-ish Algae taking over my tank :(

We recently cleaned out our tank after a few problems. Now all of our tests come back “ideal” Ph, hardness, nitrates, nitrites, etc

Now - we’ve got all of this orange stuff growing on the plastic trees and substrate... what’s going on?

You can try cutting back on the light. It doesn't sound like you have live plants.  If you don't have live plants you only really need the light when you want to look at your fish. You can shorten the timer or just click the light on when you are around.
