IIRC true SAE's will eat hair algae. There could be excess iron in your water (are you using tap?) I was overdosing Fe because I wasn't paying attention to my dosing (was doing heaping scoops instead of level scoops) and that caused some hair algae, that and I didn't have that many plants in my tank to take up the fertz.
