Looks like staghorn. Manually remove as much as possible. As you probably dread hearing, CO2 is probably your issue. If situation is really bad, do a blackout to really blow the algae back and then add fast growing plants and a lot of them. Make sure you have good flow around the tank. Also reduce lighting.
