I have some hair algae here and there and find it hard to remove. I tried a toothbrush (brushing or twisting) and the algae usually stays on the leaf. I do have SAE's and Otto's but they don't seem to venture to the top half of the tank. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Concentrate on growing the plants. Grow the plants faster than the algae. Even in the tank I maintained the least, if the plant got algae I would have enough new growth to trim the bottom of the plant and replant. If you have a low light tank and are having problems, bust out an old toothbrush.
