Too much light + not enough ferts (incl CO2) = Hair algae.

Too much light + not enough ferts (esp. CO2) = BBA.

Too much light + not enough ferts (esp. PO4) = GSA.

Etc. It isn't really that simple, but you get the drift. Rescaping and recreating the same conditions will lead to the same situation. Adding all nutrients, plenty CO2, reasonable light, healthy plants -> fairly algae free tank. After a while... hair algae take a while to disappear.
