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

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?
