Now hair algae

My tank keeps on going from one form of algae to the next. I have a low tech 46 gallon bow that I am doing dry ferts on. I was battling BGA. I switched the photoperiod to 8 hours and changed my lights so I am running dual coralife T5NO fixtures with a 6700 and 10000 bulbs. The BGA is pretty much gone. Now I have hair algae. The tank is 21 inches tall. What can I do to get rid of the hair algae? I have nerite snails and the tank houses a piranha. Should I try raising the lights off the tank? Thanks
