Plant id help

Anyone know what the name of the plant in the middle with the burgundy/red leaves is? I'm guessing a kind of rotala?

Looks like hair algae to me. Usually uping your phosphate levels will get rid of it as well as manual removal.

This was a newly set up tank... guessing it must have come in with some of my new plants. This cyano is a beast. I couldn't even wish it upon my worst enemies.

Cyanobacteria

I'm facing this beast for the first time in 15+ years of keeping numerous aquariums. I've been reading up, best I can find is treating with Maracyn or Chemi-Clean. What say you?

Nice score! I've been looking for SAE's forever. Hard to find the real species around here it seems. These were mislabeled, but I'm hoping I got what I want!

Pet store was "positive" it was a flying fox, but I'm thinking (and hoping) it is a SAE. What are your opinions?

I actually just used a regulator from my leftover stock of beer brewing equipment. It's attached to a 5# CO2 tank and has a needle valve. Pretty basic.

Amazon.com: Fluval Ceramic 88g-CO2 Diffuser - 3.1 Ounces: Pet Supplies

I use this diffuser in my Spec 2 and it works great. You can easily swap out ceramic rings if they get clogged too.
