What algae is this and what eats it?
 
The tank just was redone a couple weeks ago and this stuff is covering everything. I cut back the light, but its pretty bad

It looks like Rhizoclonium. Scroll about 2/3 down on this site for info:

its common in new tanks. manually remove as much as possible. dose excel and eventually it will go away once the tank matures again.

On the plants you also have BGA. That *might* be caused by low Nitrates.
