Let's talk green brush algae

Hello all,

I have green brush algae and I never see this talked about, but I have it. I've gotten it from time to time and typically just manually remove it. It generally grows in my DHG carpet and for that I just trim it out. So, what causes this algae? I recently changed my dosing which I believe is what triggered it, but I actually reduced my ferts.

Just a noob
