Thread Algae

My tank seems to be getting over taken by this stuff and my lighting as it stands is around medium to medium low lighting with the floating plants and stuff. I dose excel once a day and flourish 2 times a week. My taiwan moss and fissidens are completely coated it seems.

Should I spot treat with excel or just pull out as much as I can?

Should I just take the plunge and jump into pressurized CO2?

Take out as much as you can and spot treat with peroxide. You can add up to 3 ml of peroxide per gallon of tank water. Turn off you filter first and leave it off for 20 minutes after. Having pressurized CO2 will help at preventing algae.
