Default I'm pretty sure this is hair algae. Erm... HELP!

Hey everyone

Newish tank here. Aquasoil Amazonia substrate and dosing minimal ferts. Pressurised CO2 going in.

Lighting and CO2 is 4 hours on, 4 hours off, 4 hours on.

I guess it is kind of a high light tank - details here

Tank is nearish to a south-facing window, but not in direct light all day.

I'm getting hair algae, and some algae on the glass. Would any experts care to hazard a guess as to what is causing it?

Also, I'm colourblind and my gf is away. I can't tell if my drop checker is green or yellow Anyone?

Any help appreciated guys. I don't have a test kit, but if needed I will buy one. Please point me in the right direction.
