I am far from an expert but have you had a Marimo moss ball in that tank at any time? it looks like the Cladophora algae that those are made of.

Roll it all up and make moss balls with it :) With that in mind, I have no idea how to stop it from growing in your tank.

I bookmarked this earlier because it looked to have a lot of useful information about algae.
